Pesky koala gets itself stuck up drilling rig


Koalas aren’t usually the most active of animals.

But they are good climbers, as South Australian firefighters discovered when they found one perched on top of a drilling rig on a construction site in Adelaide early Tuesday morning.

It had climbed 30 metres (90 feet) up and was a repeat offender, according to 7 News Adelaide

Fortunately for this lost little one, firefighters were able to use a crane to reach the koala. 

“She was a bit reluctant. But we did manage to convince her that it was in her best interests come down,” Anne Bigham from South Australian Fauna Rescue told the news outlet.

Later dubbed “Uni Girl,” the koala was taken back down to ground, although we suppose like many animals, didn’t seem too fazed about the whole ordeal. 

She has run into trouble before, with the discovery that she had to be rescued at a nearby university back in January. 

She’ll be released Wednesday, probably to wreak more havoc on various tall things again.
