Savage Koala!

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Guest75

    I had rather an interesting meeting with a young Koala the other day.

     

    Mrs Tyke had said she had heard some commotion by the wood shed.

     

     

    I went up to investigate and there was a young Koala sat in one of our olive trees looking sleepy but covered in cobwebs and looking generally dishevelled.

    Apart from that he seemed quite happy so I left him while I was doing some weeding inthe veggie patch.

     

    A few minutes later he decided to come down and go into the woodshed where he proceeded to clamber about over everything.

    I went in carefully to try and shoo him out and back onto the gum trees.Boy he did not like being cornered and took a run at me with a warning grunt!:err::err:

    I've not moved so quick in a while but was giggling to myself at running away from something so cuddly - but if you look at his claws (and I saw his teeth) you would not want a swipe.:arghh:

    Eventually he came out -I was standing well away.He was then confused by the wire fencing around the veggie patch.I tried to steer him away,he chased me again - but saw his route to the gum trees and was off.He sat up there until dark munching so I guess he is OK.;)

     

    Some pics of him from my phone.....

    Can see the headline now.....'Yorkshireman savaged by Koala' :biglaugh:

     

    And there was me thinking I had to worry about Snakes, spiders and lots of things that live in the sea. I hadn't for one moment thought of the dangers oo those sleepy cuddley things you see in the trees.:biglaugh::biglaugh:

     

     

    Oh to be a fly on the wall. I would have paid mney to see that.:biglaugh:

    The tizer would have made a sensationalism out of that story on a slow day - unfortunately Mr Obama stole the front page:biglaugh:

    You sure it wasn't a "drop bear"?

We have a very peculiar picture of our 10 year old daughter's face while holding a Koala at Cuddlee Creek last October. I couldn't understand why she looked so pained and shell-shocked as she normally loves animals. Only to find out he had inserted one of his claws into her tummy button for leverage leaving a 1/4 inch puncture wound. Oops! Cuddly with caution, I say!!!

    The only Koala's that are safe to touch are the tame ones at Clealand and when you hold them they p**s on you, I saw one a few weeks ago chase a small dog at the park, horrible little buggers

    Hi just looking back at posts

    your story made me laugh so much

    from a fellow yorkshire lass

     

    Thank you , glad to make you laugh.

     

    If it's going to bite/sting/attack - it's probably had a go at me!

     

    Still nursing a wound from two weeks ago from a Leatherjacket bite.

    I'd forgotten he was in the bucket when I went to to put some of our catch in the esky.

    He chomped and locked on!!

     

    Where abouts in Yorkshire did you live?

     

    We came from Pudsey, near Leeds.

    Leatherjackets are the meanest little fish hanging around reefs and jetties.

    They have solid bone for a mouth and can break hooks ( I often feel them grinding on my hooks as I'm fishing)

    "Black man pinches"??Is that as eye wateringly bad as I think it is ( easy to avoid when that little piece of skin is removed when young?):arghh:

     

    Morley!

     

    One of our frozen food shops was there - near the Bottoms - called Topfreeze.

     

    Just a bit different here is it not??
