  2. Poor stupid bugger.
  3. Glad it walked away. Those critters can really bolt! They can be also really noisy and piss like a fountain.
    Had them in the trees around a house I was at and the first time I noticed one was by the sound of urine gushing down from the tree. House nearly shook from them grunting.
    Still, they are cute critters and if you had injured it then it would count for 10 kittens.

  11. great.
  12. Poor little bugger, not really aware of his surroundings. Hope his/her hind leg is okay as he/she appeared to stumble when he got back on his/her feet.
  13. Maybe netrider needs a kitten kill counter as well as the nod counter

  16. Glad the koala made it OK. Bugger about the bike though.
  17. LOL all those cars and bikes getting in a mess for a little Koala. I'm glad some people still care about animals :)
    So glad he made it out okay there, could've ended badly.

    The "hit" reminds me of a couple of weeks ago a Kangaroo just came out of nowhere in the middle of Ringwood (very built up suburb for anyone who doesn't know) and every car on the road slowed down but one guy still somehow managed to just slightly hit it. It got tripped up but got back up hopped off.
  18. you guys ride too close together

  19. That was one lucky koala. And some even luckier riders.
    Nice ebraking by the rider of the white bike in the first vid (y)
    The other riders may want to review their roadcraft.
