Elize told an interviewer that her mother lives in a rural town in Australia. Kangaroos are also common in the area, with them being seen "hopping around every day". Thankfully Gemma isn't as soft on the inside as she appears on the outside. Gemma is ontop of guarding her home according to Eliza. "She goes crazy if someone she doesn't know comes to the door or if she can smell or hear another dogs walking by the house," she said.
"When Gemma the dog started barking I thought someone was trying to break in for sure," Elize said to the interviewer. "I crept out of bed, heart racing, and gingerly pulled the curtian aside to get a glimpse outside. I did a double take when I spotted the little koala."
Elize wanted to get close enough to see if the little guy was hurt, but thankfully he was just calm and wanted to hang out. She did say she searched for the koala later the next morning but found no trace. She contacted koalatracker.com.au after the incident.
It's 3am and the dog is barking like mad. I pluck up the courage to investigate...and find this little mate! pic.twitter.com/NyFRjSpJny— Elize Strydom (@elizestrydom) October 22, 2016" class="alignleft size-full wp-image-24" />
Now the only question left is, how do we get our own backyard koalas?
