As you all know #1300KOALAZ #Claude has been vacationing at Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Centre following being hit by a car late last week. Unfortunately yesterday when vets were monitoring him they noticed some bloat in Claude’s stomach and stiffness in his elbow that warranted further investigation.

X-rays of Claude’s abdomen and elbow revealed severe bloat and an old injury to his elbow that was causing it to not sit in its joint properly. These gut and physical injuries may explain why Claude has not been able to thrive in the wild and why he’s been rescued so many times lately. Unfortunately, the heartbreaking decision was made to give Claude peace 🌈💔

Whilst we are all heartbroken, 1300KOALAZ would still like to thank everyone involved in Claude’s care, rescue and the brilliant vet team for their amazing work.

If you see a sick, injured or orphaned koala call 1300KOALAZ on 1300 562 529 and we’ll send a rescuer 24/7 💚🐨

RIP sweet Claude 🌈🐨

Nooo poor Clyde. Heartbreaking news poor little man 🐨

Beautiful boy Claude, you have been given your wings without anymore pain and discomfort. Better doing it peacefully by the amazing people who love you than to suffer any longer in the wild.

Here in South Australia a DEW permit is required to be able to rescue and/or care for a koala.

It is also illegal to keep a koala as a pet.

So you can imagine our concern when we were sent to a rescue where two individuals were attempting to retrieve a koala to keep as a pet.

Fortunately for the koala, which was tagged, our rescuer managed to retrieve Mark the koala as he was climbing down and get him into her car and drive away before anything could happen to him.

The police had been called and hopefully arrived after our rescuer left to have words with the two individuals.

Mark was dropped off not too far away but out of harms way.

Please, if you need to call someone to rescue a koala make sure the individual has a rescue or carers permit. All of our rescuers and carers have the correct permits to allow them to rescue and/or care for a koala legally.

If you find a sick, injured, orphaned or distressed koala please call 1300KOALAZ for help or advice.

For crying out loud…what your team deals with…how incredibly hard your job must be at times 🙏super happy he's ok!

You must be kidding who is that stupid to think they can keep a wild animal?? What the hell

I think Mark was in my street tonight. He was taking a stroll down the road and climbed a tree. If it was him, sounds like he had quite the adventure

People can be so stupid. Thank you for rescuing him 🐨💜

As much as I would love to touch one, I'd never put one of these beautiful creatures in danger by thinking I could do this on my own! They are wild! I imagine with those claws "You'd put your eye out"!

Our poor koalas have so much to endure and now this, Great Work Louise 🙏❤️

What is safe???

For goodness sake. It ain’t America. Leave these precious animals in their home 😳 And a big Thank you for all you do 💓

Well that could have been dangerous for our rescuer.

The world is full of TOOLS

The stupidity of people! Glad Mark is safe! 🐨Thank you for all the work you do with koalas 🐨 💕

I'm so glad that Mark was rescued by the right person and released. I love it when we see a koala in our garden but those claws look frightening

There's one on our street on a small tree it came out of a abandoned area. Not sure if it needs to be rescued but it's just confused and my street is all houses so I'm pretty sure it's lost

Bless his little heart 🐨💚

Poor koala!🐨💚

Poor mark he adorable what’s wrong with humans ! Thank you for saving this precious boy paws crossed their lots of healthy eucalyptus trees for him to say safe and healthy Our governments and councils need to plant more eucalyptus trees and make safer habitats away from humans and cars and supply residents and property owners and communities with eucalyptus trees ro plant to make healthy habitats for these precious endangered koalas 🐨 Maybe rescue group can help educate these humans and get them to do volunteer work in sanctuaries so can educate and help them and these precious koalas 🐨

Bless him Mark 🐾🐾💙💙

That is so sweet

sest pas vrais il fond exprais

Grazie per aver salvato questo koala 🐨

ptg

Such people make me sick 😞

As much as I wish I could have a pet koala, that’s illegal for a reason, these sweeties need to be free or in special care.🐨❤️🐨❤️

I reakon they are awsome looking creatures

Hermoso bello me encantan mucho gracias por ayudarlo con tanto Amor son Preciosos Bendicion de Dios Maravillosa

Claude our #1300KOALAZ boomerang koala is back again.

He just can’t help himself, but gets into trouble at the drop of a hat. This time he was hit by a motor vehicle which left him with cuts, bruises and an open wound under his arm.

To stop this open wound getting infected he is vacationing at the Koala Hospital for the weekend so it can be treated before he will once more come into care.

Please, please slow down when driving between dusk and dawn when koalas are most active.

If you find a sick, injured, orphaned or distressed koala please call 1300koalaz for help or advice.

Maybe can this little cutie become a permanent resident? maybe it would be safer for him.

Oh No do people just don't see them. Poor Claude

Oh poor Claude. We need to save him🙏🙏🥰🥰❤️

Claude you are a problem child arent you? Need a frequent flyer card bud, hopefully you heal quickly lil man 💞🐨💞🥰😘

Poor fella the stress their poor bodies have to endure with loss of their precious habitats and food source to keep them healthy and stress free ! Our governments and councils need to stop destroying their precious habitats and plant more eucalyptus trees and make safe habitats and reserves where they can live safely away from humans and cars and encourage councils and property owners and communities to plant eucalyptus trees so our precious endangered koalas 🐨 can live safely away from humans and cars and have abundance of healthy eucalyptus trees sadly they can’t survive or stay healthy without their healthy abundance of eucalyptus trees! Thank you for your great work and love helping save our precious endangered koalas 🐨 bless you all big big healing hunts handsome boy ! Lap up the loves precious one ! Hope you feeling better real soon !

Maybe a little flouro coat for him so drivers can see him!!!

Poor Claude. On the other hand either could be a ruse to keep coming back for all the attention!!!

He just likes being pampered! 🙂

Praying 🙏 for his total healing & for his safety in the future
