Video transcript

NARRATOR: A service station attendant was left stunned after a koala tried to climb up his leg.



- Hey, yeah, yeah, OK, I don't know how to get him off. So--

- Come on.

- Oh, you can push him off. How about that?

NARRATOR: With no one on staff knowing how to handle koalas, rescuers were called in and the feisty female was released into nearby bushland.
