A koala nicknamed Bob puts his paw around fellow fire survivor Sam, a little girl, at the Southern Ash Wildlife Shelter in Rawson, Australia. Sam has been deeply traumatized by the disaster, but is slowly recovering.
“…SYDNEY – A bond between two burned koalas rescued from Australia’s deadliest wildfires has provided some heart-warming relief after days of devastation and the loss of more than 180 lives and possibly millions of animals… ”
“The baby koala rescued above was found shaking underneath a verandah and “looking very sick” after its mother was apparently overcome by the ferocious heatwave that struck Victoria last week.”
Millions of other animals are said to be in dire straits…
SAM became the most famous koala in the world when firefighter David Tree stopped to give him a drink amid the devastation.
“The most amazing part was when she grabbed my hand. I will never forget that…”
“…Carer Jenny Shaw said she suffered burns on her paws and was in a lot of pain, but was on the road to recovery.
She was put on an IV drip and is on antibiotics and pain relief treatment.
“She is lovely – very docile – and she has already got an admirer. A male koala keeps putting his arms around her,” Ms Shaw said….”
New Quote About Sam and Bob from her caretaker:
“She said Sam had suffered second degree burns to her paws and would take seven to eight months to recover while Bob had three burned paws with third degree burns and should be well enough to return to the bush in about four months.
“They keep putting their arms around each other and giving each other hugs. They really have made friends and it is quite beautiful to see after all this. It’s been horrific,” said Wood.”
