Sam the Koala Bear


An Australian fireman came upon this bewildered koala bear who gladly accepted a drink of water. The Koala was taken to a shelter for treatment of injuries and is now called Sam.

Bob the Koala has befriended Sam and is taking good care of him.

The remarkable part of this story is that usually, koalas are pretty vicious.

Debby I'd be vicious too if all I ate was eucalyptus - it's like having Vicks for breakfast
