As the horrific wildfires continue to spread across much of Australia, the animals in the area are doing everything possible to seek relief. And one koala saw an opportunity to approach some cyclists and ask for a drink.
Anna Heusler was biking with her friends when they saw a koala in the road in front of them. It soon became clear that the animal was very thirsty and desperate for help.
“This Koala walked right up to me as I was descending and climbed up onto my bike while I gave him water,” she said on Instagram.
The koala was able to quench his thirst from several of the bikers’ water bottles before being safely escorted off of the road to continue on his way.
Anna and her friends were happy to be able to assist when this koala needed it most. And here’s to hoping all of the animals being affected by the fires soon get the help they seek.
