Angry koala storms into gas station and claws at employee’s leg: ‘I don’t know how to get him off’
- A koala has walked into a gas station in South Australia
- It wanders inside before climbing onto an attendant
An angry koala has stormed into a gas station before clawing at the leg of an employee at an Adelaide Hills gas station.
The 5.7 kg female koala walked through the front door of the Ampol gas station this weekend.
CCTV footage shows the marsupial wandering past shelves of soft drinks and candy before ending up behind the counter.
The koala surprised the gas station attendant when she pushed her way to his leg.
“I don’t know how to get it off,” the worker said.
The koala decided to jump off the worker’s leg and then spent nearly 40 minutes searching the shelves until Koala Rescue Inc arrived and released her into a forest about 500 yards away.
Volunteer wildlife rescuer Jemma Manfre said after she was released, the koala sprinted up a tree and didn’t look back until she was at the top.
