Video: Koala Saved By Australian Firefighter

Sam the Koala Bear was caught in the horrible wildfires going on in Australia. She gets a drink and a rescue from a wonderful firefighter in this video! Glad to report Sam is recovering well, and has a new BFF Koala named Bob at the wildlife rescue center. Sam suffered second degree burns to her paws and will take seven to eight months to recover, while Bob has three burned paws with third degree burns and should be well enough to return to the bush in about four months.

“They keep putting their arms around each other and giving each other hugs. They really have made friends and it is quite beautiful to see after all this. It’s been horrific.” Kudos to the firefighters in Australia, and may God protect you all!
