‘Dad saved it from the dogs curiosity and grabbed it and put it inside the house.’
Koala’s are a not an unusual sight on the Snow’s homestead, where they planted eucalyptus trees across the two-acres to encourage the furry friends to visit.
But the couple were certainly not expecting to get so close to the cute critter.
Millie the kelpie was moved to another room away from the young koala as it clung onto the bedframe, a suitable place considering the marsupials sleep for 20 hours a day.
Once the dog was safely secured in the next room, Mr Snow was able to return the young koala back to the wild, sustaining a few scratches on his hands in the process.
