(FASTNEWS|COLOMBO) – A video of a thirsty koala drinking water from a plastic bottle has gone viral on social media. Shared on Facebook by Chantelle Lowrie, the viral clip was shot on the banks of the Murray River, north of Strathmerton, Australia.
With the continent going through a heatwave with temperature hitting 44 degrees Celsius, Lowrie decided to help out the animal when she spotted it. “My first thought was that the poor little fella needs a drink,” Lowrie told ABC news.
In the footage, the woman can be seen walking towards the animal with a bottle of water. While the koala initially hesitates as the woman comes close, it later on drinks from the plastic bottle.
