Koala stops traffic while taking an evening stroll

WHY did the koala cross the road?

Well, we don't know why exactly, but this koala was spotted crossing the road in Bangalow last night, with a photo of the incident posted on social media by local Pippa Vickery.

"I cannot believe it, just got home and had to give way to a koala crossing the Main Street in Bangalow! Best night ever!" she said.

Locals shared their reactions on the post.

"Oh now that is the cutest thing ever!" Sue Cook said.

"In 23 years living there, coming home at all sorts of odd hours, camping in paddocks round the creek I never saw one in bangalow. That's so cool!" Zachariah Bullfrog said.

"That's awesome Pip! For a few months now I've been hearing a koala at night. Yes Zac, in 28 years year I've never seen or heard one here before," Janne Coleman said.
