Koala hitches a ten-mile ride in Australia

AUSTRALIA — An unlikely hitchhiker was able to latch on for a ten-mile ride in Australia.

A driver said he found the koala clinging to the axle of his four-wheel drive vehicle after he stopped when he heard cries coming from the scared animal.

The female koala crawled into the wheel arch while the car was parked.

Emergency crews took the wheel off and helped a wildlife rescue worker free the koala back into the wild.
