This koala was found clinging to the grille of a car when the driver stopped at a service station in Gympie ,Queensland. It had been seen crossing the road in front of the car 88km back . This tenacious furry thrill seeker would have hung on to the grill while the car was cruising at the 100km/hour limit. After a checkup at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, he was declared to be ok. He was named Timberwolf after the local football team.50's-60's-Italian Spaghetti Art Pottery Sitting Cat

Is that you Sir Chompalot ?  Dramatic koala rescue in Melbourne


After being hit by a car near Langwarrin in Melbourne, a Koala bear scampered up a gumtree, then passed out clinging to the tree. Volunteers from the Animalia wildlife shelter located the unconcious animal and dropped it to the ground, time being the essence. Michelle Thomas actually performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on the koala and one of the other rescue squad members was  pumping the koala’s chest to get some movement in the heart and  get some air into the lungs at the same time. After a close encounter with Koala Nirvana, the little furry champ uttered a growl, and was ready to roam the bush another day, after a brief recuperation at the shelter. He was thought to be one of the local gumtree inhabitants named Sir Chompalot, because he is always eating gum leaves.
