A koala has wandered into a petrol station in South Australia before clawing up a worker’s leg.
The 5.7kg female koala walked through the front doors of the Ampol service station in the Adelaide Hills over the weekend.
CCTV footage shows the marsupial wandering past shelves filled with soft drinks and lollies, before making her way behind the counter.
The koala stunned the service station attendant as she clawed her way up his leg.
‘I don’t know how to get him off,’ the worker said.
The koala decided to jump back off the worker’s leg and then spent almost 40 minutes browsing the shelves until Koala Rescue Inc arrived and released her at a forest about 500 metres away.
Volunteer wildlife rescuer Jemma Manfre said after being released, the koala sprinted up a tree and didn’t look back until she was up the top.
