We all know that a woman’s purse in some way shape or form is a strong duplicate of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Honestly, it’s a no man’s land, especially for one 50-year-old Australian native.
It all started in Queensland, Australia when this lady was stopped on a patrol and then arrested for “outstanding matters.” Of course, when police officers noticed a green canvas bag on her person they asked if she had anything else to declare. Lo and behold, out pops a koala. Yes, you read that right. A six-month-old baby joey was UNZIPPED from this lady’s bag.
Listen, I have a Chihuahua who I bring EVERYWHERE, and by everywhere I do mean EVERYWHERE. My mom tried getting me on that whole, ‘put your dog in a stroller’ phenomenon but I thought even that was cruel… Well, cruel for the owners mainly, but still, you get my point. I would never deprive something so little and cute of precious freedom, but this lady went balls to the wall and carried this koala in a makeshift furnace for a pretty long time.
According to police officials, she found this little nugget on the side of the road the previous night. I just hope that bugger wasn’t in that canvas bag all night long because I’ll be on the next flight straight to Brisbane, Australia regardless of what my bank account tells me. And I’m not the only one who was shocked and angered by this woman’s disregard for an animal’s freedom.
Thankfully, the infamous baby koala was given to Australia’s Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. In a recent update, officials said the koala was dehydrated, but that he is “doing well.”
Oh, and they even gave him a new name- Alfred.
