Koala goes on 16km ride attached to axle of auto

"You think you've seen it all, no, I've never seen anything like that".

The female koala, who has been named Kelli, had climbed into the wheel of a auto for shelter unbeknownst to the driver.

Dave Juniper of the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service, said: "Kelli's one of our fine station officers and she led the rescue crew that day and she was quite excited to have such a good outcome".

The rescuers who came to free her from the auto wheel said they could smell her burning fur. "I could only see the top of her head and a paw".

"She was stuck in there, I tried to get her out but she was really wedged in there tight and hanging on for dear life".

Ms Brister has rescued more than 200 koalas and said 80% of the rescues are fatal, making Kelly's survival even more remarkable.

She climbed into the auto in Adelaide, Australia.

Tigers held without a touchdown in 35-3 loss to Purdue
Defensively, the Boilermakers dominated the Tigers all night by holding them to just a field goal on 203 yards. After a fiery, lectern-pounding postgame press conference last week, Odom was somber and subdued Saturday.

A happy koala, after the dramatic rescue.

Firefighters were forced to remove the car's wheel to help free the animal in Adelaide, Australia.

Sadly, she is a new mother as vets could tell she was lactating so her joey is now without a mother unless the koala can make it back to her young.

Ms Brister said: "It would have been hot in there".

"But unfortunately we weren't able to find the baby joey".

In our favourite survival story of the year, a Koala has managed to survive a 16-kilometre journey while trapped in the wheel axle of a auto.

"The female was in shock for 48-hours that followed, anxious and hyper vigilant", Ms Brister recalled once she had taken the koala home.
