This is an adorable picture of a koala that has survived the Victorian bushfires. She is being given a drink of water by firefighter David Tree. Fortunately Sam is OK, unlike a lot of our other native wildlife from the area, having only some burnt paws. Sam is recovering at the Mountain Ash Wildlife Shelter where she has been on an IV drip, antibiotics and pain relief treatment.
The Herald Sun’s cartoonist Mark Knight has given his unique view of the above event.
