Australia has been experiencing an unbearably hot heatwave for some time and it’s not only humans that are suffering from the heat but the animals too. Raging bushfires have not helped this matter as well as it has destroyed the homes of wild animals and their food sources too.

Previously, it was reported that thousands of koala bears lost their homes and died in forest fires as well. A heroic woman also saved a koala bear trapped in the burning forest and went viral. Now, another koala bear has gone viral for cleverly seeking help while it was dehydrated and chased after a cyclist to get water.

The cyclist, Anna Heusler was cycling with her friends in Adelaide on Friday (December 27th) when a furry little creature chased after her for help. She said that the koala climbed up onto her bicycle and asked for water as it was severely dehydrated in the heatwave. 

She also posted a video of the thirsty koala drinking water non-stop from her tumbler as she fed it. The poor thing was so dehydrated that it drank for a long time and was so tame that she could even pet it. Heusler said that on that day, it was a record 40°C at Adelaide, South Australia and the bushfires had been burning for a few days, which had caused devastating losses.

There were about a dozen cyclists around me watching this (all men) and several commented that it was genuinely the best thing they’ve witnessed. What a truly wonderful experience. Check out my previous posts this morning for explanation. : : : #cyclingtips #cycling #roadcycling #roadbike #roadbikelife #lifeonabike #travelbybike #cyclingphotography #cycleshots #rideyourbike #instacycle #veloclub #cyclinglife #fromwhereride #switchbacks #roadslikethese #cyclingpassion #cyclingworld #whenindoubtpedalitout #womenonbikes #womenriders @cyclingtips @veloclub.cc @iamspecialized @iamspecialized_wmn @womenridebikes #rideadelaide #radelaide #adelaide #adelaidehills #southaustralia #koala #koalabear #koalabears #australia
