Koala survives 60-mph impact, 7 miles in grille

CANBERRA, Australia - A koala that cheated death after being hit by a car at about 60 mph and dragged with his head jammed through the vehicle grille for about 7 miles is being dubbed Australia's luckiest marsupial.

On a positive note, this koala was hit by a car, took a 7 mile ride while being jammed in the front grill, then was fine a few hours later.

Just wanted to throw this story out there due to its happy ending

So I guess the driver was out a couple Koala Burgers then?

I don't know the rules on road kill there.

Either way, poor guy was probably all hopped up on that leaf they chew.

Nice happy ending though! (for the Koala)

WOW how unlucky can you be? First to be hit by a car at 60mph , then taken for a drive of 7 miles AND to live in Australia as well. POOR KOALA...

(J/K Aus is good it brought us Kylie)


If it lived over here in the UK it would have been hit, taken for a drive, then stabbed and had its wallet nicked.

Poor thing,that must have been very traumatic for it. I hope it's had it's wounds dressed and then taken back to where it came from.
