Robert: Australian woman finds koala bear in her Christmas tree


What animals pop into mind when you think of Christmas? Reindeer probably. But how about koalas?

Animal rescuers in Australia were called to a home of a woman who found the marsupial in the branches of her Christmas tree.

The Adelaide and Hills Koala Rescue says they got a call from Amanda McCormick reporting finding a koala climbing the Christmas tree inside her home.

“A koala desperate to get in the Christmas spirit had wandered into Amanda’s house and decided it wanted to be the fairy on the Christmas tree,” the rescue¬†said on Facebook.

Once wildlife officials arrived, the koala was safely returned to the outdoors.

“Koalas are very curious creatures and if the opportunity presents itself, they will investigate.”
