Claude the koala busted again for evading security to eat seedlings
June 10, 2024 7:05 PM   Subscribe

Claude the hungry koala scales fences in broad daylight to sample young seedlings at a nursery. He's a repeat offender and has attracted mates to the free feed, costing the nursery thousands of damaged plants. The nursery owner hopes new fencing and a mass planting project nearby will deter the brazen koala from repeated daylight robbery.

I originally didn't detect the "n" in "fences." Fortunately, my eyes adjusted in time.

I guess this particular koala isn’t particularly nocturnal.

What a great response from the nursery owner! Yeah, it's eating our product, but that's because we've diminished their habitat and not leaving them any options. So we're working with our community and people who are planting trees so that we can try to fix this in a way that helps the koalas and us." (Paraphrase.)

Wasn't the Brazen Koala a statue stolen from a mysterious temple in a pulp story?
