In a surprising incident, Australian Volunteer Coast Guard recovered Koalas on the moorings of a boat on October 8 in Australia at about 300 metres off the coast of Warneet in Victoria. But, luckily the coast guard recovered him.
“The crew observed the koala dangling onto a rope, that’s why they evacuated him on the boat,” affirmed coast guard Jeremy West.
His body was drained with towels and enclosed in a blanket ahead of being freed into close bushland.
“It was very shocking, it’s not daily you come across a koala in the water! The koala seems very joyful when it was at the backside on boat,” Mr West added.
“It was a great feel story with a joyful conclusion for our fuzzy small companion,” affirmed Deanne Semmens of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard.
The photographs of Koala have gone viral on the social media. “Glad you found and rescued him and I bet he was very glad too,” a Facebook user wrote. “Well done coast guard,” another said.
