"The koala went out of my shop, now it's in Russell's shop," a nearby business owner can be heard saying.

"Well take it back to your shop," a man says.

"No, obviously your discounts are cheaper here," the first man says.

A few people suggested the koala may have been hot.

"They usually venture into shops cos their hot and are looking for somewhere cool to hang out," one person wrote on Facebook.
