Woman cuts koala free from fence and his ‘thank you’ has touched over 1.5M hearts

Saving animals is not something only the brave ones can do.

Every day, there is an opportunity to be kind and caring for animals. Unlike humans, animals are not as intelligent to know how to save themselves from dangerous things. We can make a difference and help the animals out by choosing to be kind and genuinely concerned about their welfare.

While most of us would think that only courageous people are able to save an animal’s life, this is not necessarily true. Even simple folks walking by can make a difference by saving animals in need of rescuing.

One rescue story proves that even local residents not trained for animal rescue can save a koala in need.

A resident of Byron Bay in Australia was doing her usual routine of feeding her chickens when she found an unusual scene. A koala was trapped in a chicken coop fence and the nylon is wrapped tightly around the animal’s body.

The woman saw that the animal was having a hard time freeing itself so she promptly acted. The woman grabbed her scissors and went back to the fence to free the koala.

“We woke early one morning to find this little fella wrapped up in the nylon fencing we use around our chicken pen,” the woman shared.

The rescuer carefully reaches for the koala and worked on cutting the nylons around its body.

While the lady was busy rescuing the little fellow, the animal just silently sat and waited throughout the process. The cute koala was on its best behavior as the woman cut and snips around him.

She gently reassures the animal as she held it with utmost care.

“It’s okay my baby, we’re going to fix this for you,” she said. “I’ve got you, try not to struggle.”

Her words seem to be working because the koala is clearly at ease while waiting to be freed.

The woman succeeded in freeing the koala’s arms, but it started to show distress when the woman tried to free its feet.

Before she could get to the rope wrapped around its feet, the koala managed to escape the nylons and ran happily to the nearby bushes. The woman was happy to be of help and the best thing about it was that she was able to film all that happened that morning.

The adorable clip of the koala being rescued was uploaded online where people got to see what transpired that day. The way the woman helped the animal and the fact that she was not an expert but was still able to help out is truly inspiring.
