"Koala Man" Dave Tree made news across the globe with footage of a koala drinking from a bottle. The footage, shot on a mobile phone was all over Youtube.
However the appealing scene was actually taken in the week leading up to the fires, during preventative backburning operations.
He's still in news. They are doing a TV show about the lady who is now looking after him. Koalas don't normally drink. They get all their moisture from Eucalyptus leaves, which also makes them pretty stoned most of the time....what a life!
