Koala breaks into house and sets up home in a family’s Christmas tree while they were out

THIS cute koala cunningly clambered into a family’s Christmas tree while they were out.

When she got home, Amanda McCormick, 44, saw all the baubles were knocked off.

She said: “Suddenly I had this koala looking me in the face. I thought it was a joke.”

Amanda, who is mum to Taylah, 16, and Hayden, 13, said: “My daughter had left the door open earlier in the day so the dog could get in and out.

“The koala must have snuck in then without anyone realising. It would have been hanging out in our home for a good three hours before we discovered him.

“She went out, and then we all got home later on and we saw that the dog headed straight for the Christmas tree.

“It was hilarious. Then the koala didn’t seem to want to leave, he was very comfortable."

Their adorable visitor was then taken outside by a specialised koala rescue team and is now happily back outside chewing on gum leaves.
