Mama Koala – Part 2

Comments Off

I also spoke with Mama Koala and here is what she told me about the accident and the surgery. When the accident happened, all she wanted to do was to protect her baby.

Baby Koala’s Story – Part 1

Comments Off

Oz Needs To Live

Sadly we hear about these kind of accidents often and then the question is, shall the animal be ‘destroyed’. 99.99% of the time the animal is not planning to kill a person. Most of the time it is human error,…
