Young Koala Joey Has Herself a Good Long Cry After a Big Bully Kicks Her Out of Her Tree

After being pushed out of her tree by a much larger koala, a young joey in Adelaide Hills, South Australia sat on the ground, had herself a good cry and then tried over and again to stake out her territory, only to be chased over out and again. Luckily, the little one was persistent and eventually reclaimed her space by nightfall.

According to Alicia Alexander of Cute Koala Kisses, sometimes wild koalas can be mean.

This poor little Koala is trying to stake out its own territory when it is kicked out of the tree by a big bully! This brave young Koala desperately tries again. GOOD ENDING! The little koala won as it had claimed the tree by nightfall :) Welcome to a glimpse of what it is like living amongst a wild koala population.

Happily, Alexander came back a few days later with an update to the joey’s predicament.
