Australia: Adelaide cyclists stop to give thirsty koala a drink from water bottle


Cyclist Nick Lothian snapped these photos of a group of cyclists stopping to give a thirsty koala a sip from a water bottle on a ride in the Adelaide Hills yesterday afternoon.

“I was riding up the old freeway and saw them on the other side of the road and stopped to take the pics,” Mr Lothian said.

“About 30 minutes later I was coming down and the couple (the man with the koala on his wheel and a woman – I think they were American) were still there,” he said. “I stopped and talked to them and gave them some more water, which the Koala was drinking pretty greedily.”

Mr Lothian said he waited around until animal rescue volunteers arrived to take care of the fuzzy fellow.
