'Kent the Koala' Recovers From Dog Attack and Climbs Back Into the Wild
Kent the Koala climbs again!
The cuddly joey suffered serious injuries after a vicious dog attack and abandoned in a local park in Australia.
HKPS volunteers were able to rescue Kent and nursed the leaf eater back to health for several weeks until he was healthy enough to be released back into the wild.
The rescuers documented the sweet moment of Kent’s strength and courage in a video posted to the HKPS Facebook page. In it, the marsupial can be seen slowly climbing a tree and settling in a new home.
Although he was a bit hesitant at first, the volunteers lent the koala a helping hand until he was ready to head up on his own.
Koalas are typically stressed when attacked and almost never survive. Kent’s victorious recovery is nothing short of a miracle — thanks to the love and care of his rescuers.
