Koalas seem cute and cuddly on the surface, masking the fact that they’re still wild animals.
Such as these two koalas who had a brawl in the middle of a highway in southwestern Victoria, Australia, who narrowly missed being hit by a truck.
Sharon Bercely told 9 News she was driving home when she saw the two marsupials fighting. While most people might drive on by, she stopped and got out of her car to help shoo the angry koalas off the road.
“Off the road you stupid animals,” Bercely told the koalas in the video.
Had Bercely not intervened, a semi-trailer would’ve been on a collision course with the animals, but she was there in time to get the truck onto the highway’s emergency lane.
“I’ve never seen them fight in the middle of the road before. They’re so silly. They’re so slow,” she told the TV station.
Eventually the koalas were forced off the road, mustered into bushland with the help of a towel from her car. Such foolish things.
