Koala Walks Into Australian Bar
Customers at an Australian bar got to enjoy a drink with some of the local wildlife last weekend. The "Brisbane Times" is reporting that a koala walked into the Marlin Bar on Queensland's Magnetic Island last Saturday night. The unexpected visitor was a hit with the other bar patrons. Customers began taking pictures and calling their friends. Employee Kevin Martin remarks, quote, "He sauntered up to the bar...I asked him for ID and he got all disgruntled...walked around the bar and then climbed up a pole and sulked." Local rangers eventually removed the koala from the bar and returned him to the wild. Martin says the animal is welcome back whenever he likes, adding, quote, "If we could tee him up on a weekly basis it would be great."
