News.com:ABC | Photo: SuppliedKoalas have been left stranded on the busy highway in Melbourne after being stranded in the bush for three days.
A koala was found dead on Monday night.
It is not known what happened to the animal, but the man who found it was a family friend.
The man said he was driving through the area to get some fresh air and saw the animal in a field with its head down and a small child sitting next to it.
“I thought it was an old koala or a kangaroos and thought it had just been out on the road and had wandered off,” the man said.
Mr Brown, a former wildlife ranger who now runs the Blue Hill Reserve, said he had seen koalas crossing the roads, especially on the highway, before.””
I was a little bit freaked out when I saw it and thought, ‘That’s not going to go down’.”
Mr Brown, a former wildlife ranger who now runs the Blue Hill Reserve, said he had seen koalas crossing the roads, especially on the highway, before.
“You could see the koalae on the side of the road with their heads down, and they were probably looking around,” he said.
The koala has not been seen since.
“They’ve been out there, they’ve been in the fields, they have been in waterholes, they had been in ponds, they just never made it across the road,” Mr Brown said.
A passerby who noticed the koali had been left to die and contacted the Department of Primary Industries and Forestry said they would be taking it to the vet.
The Department of Environment said the koalan was not wearing any clothes and had been wearing a pair of white trainers.
“The koalak was a very young one,” Environment Minister Chris Pyne said.
