Koala survives 16km journey in wheel arch of a vehicle

Koala Takes Death-Defying Ride In 4WD Wheel Arch 'I could smell burnt fur': Kelly the koala miraculously survives a death-defying road trip while she was stuck UNDER a moving car for 16 kilometres

It is thought the koala nestled in behind a wheel of the vehicle sometime on Saturday before she was discovered later that night.

After several days recovery Ms Brister was able to release the koala back into the wild close to where her original journey began.

On his way to a family member's house, the driver pulled over after being flagged down by other motorists thinking something was wrong with his auto.

Fauna rescuer Jane Brister went to the site and initially tried calling the RAA.

"I suspect the fireys may have used some very subtle engineering, but anyhow, the wheel came off", Mr Bigham said.

"She had been feeding recently and when they have a bigger back riding joey they leave little knots, they knot up all the fur on their mum's back from holding on and she had that on her back", Ms Brister said.

She added: 'I searched that night and the next day, and the next, but I never found it'.

"She's been crying, was very distressed and was in shock for 48 hours".

Sadly, she is a new mother as vets could tell she was lactating so her joey is now without a mother unless the koala can make it back to her young.

The swift acting wildlife officer climbed under the auto equipped with a head torch.

After taking care of the female marsupial for two days, Brister released it again.

It became stuck in the car's grille and was not discovered until 10km later when the driver arrived home.

"We weren't sure if she was pinned at first", she said. "The koala was sitting up there somewhere and I think that one was okay as well".
