When this good Samaritan saw a koala who was hanging out in the Australian heat, she didn’t hesitate to share her water with the thirsty critter.
Chantelle Lowrie had been staying at a campground in southern Victoria last week when she saw the marsupial on the side of the road.
Temperatures had reached a sweltering 111º Fahrenheit (44º Celsius) when Lowrie spotted the koala, and she couldn’t help but wonder whether it needed some hydration in the heat.
“My first thought was that the poor little fella needs a drink,” Lowrie told ABC News.
Lowrie then approached the koala as it was climbing a tree and held out her water bottle. When it spotted the water, however, it stopped and enjoyed a 25-second respite as Lowrie poured the water into its mouth.
Once it was satisfied, it continued on its merry way and Lowrie posted a video of the exchange to Facebook where it garnered thousands of views from social media users applauding the Aussie woman for her compassion.
