A beloved Queensland koala fights for hospital life after being attacked by a dog.
Teadoro is a four and a half year old male koala that is often seen around Tea Tree Bay in the Noosa National Park.

& # 39; He tried to climb but did not have the strength in his arms, & # 39; said Mr. Jean.
Upon examination, Teadoro had wounds on his stomach that he thought had been attacked by a dog days ago.
Dogs are not allowed in the Noosa National Park.
Mr. JeanHe believes that the attacker of Teadoro was a domestic dog, because & # 39; a wild dog would have done much more damage & # 39 ;.
Teadoro was taken to the Zoo Zoo Hospital in Australia, where he awaits an operation in a critical condition.
Jean emphasized the importance of keeping dogs and other animals away from the habitat of the koala.
& # 39; We need people who are aware that they cannot let go of their dog in the koala area &, said Jean.
Teadoro is a Spanish word that translates to & # 39; I adore you & # 39 ;.
