When animals ask...

During the first week of March, when the temperature in Southern Australia reached 120 degrees F., the koalas started approaching humans for water. Some went to nearby homes, but this one stopped some bikers.

It behooves us to watch for animal distress, help them when we can, especially when they ask. This had never happened before to the people of Austrailia. They answered the call by placing large containers of water on porches and out in their yards. Or as these bikers did: they stopped and shared their supply!


  1. Dear Dixie,
    What a heart-warming story and photographs.
    It must be something when a koala wants water.
    Thanks for sharing this, Dixie.
    In kindness and peace, Gary x

  2. Dear Dixie,
    As Gary says, this is such a nice, heart-warming thing to see.
    To see a wild animal actually "asking" for something in this way seems unusual, but touching. And to see the people respond with such kindness somewhat restores one's faith in human nature.
    Thanks, dc, for sharing this extraordinary moment with us.
    With much Respect,

  3. Awww, how sweet! Kinda brings a tear to my eye. I would always help an animal without thinking about it and it's good to see others will too. Thanks for the article. It makes me feel good.

  4. Gary, David, & Heather P:

    Heart-warming, extraordinary, and heart-wrenching... yes!

    I appreciate your your time to read & comment. Dixie X
