Animal rescuers in Australia were summoned to he home of a woman who found something unexpected in the branches of her Christmas tree: a koala.
The Adelaide and Hills Koala Rescue said the hotline operator initially thought they were being pranked when Amanda McCormick called to report finding a koala climbing the Christmas tree inside her home in Mannum.
“But no, 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 female koala was safely returned to the outdoors.
“Koalas are very curious creatures and if the opportunity presents itself, they will investigate,” the rescue told 9 News.
