It wandered around the balcony before climbing on to a bed covered with a rather garish blue and pink floral duvet, where the koala settled in for a while. The women called the ranger at the nearby Bungalow Bay Koala Village — a local backpacker resort which doubles as a wildlife park — to find out what to do. "They called and said, ‘this is not a prank but there’s a koala who just walked into our house and is sleeping on our bed’," Bungalow Bay ranger Clifford Harman said. "I couldn’t believe it, I’ve seen them in the wild and I’ve heard them climbing into cars and stuff, but not on a bed." Mr Harman, 23, a backpacker from Canada who is volunteering at Bungalow Bay in exchange for free accommodation and work as a koala tour guide, called the local government parks and wildlife officers who came to rescue the animal. "They came and took him away to set him free in the wild up at one of the spots where lots of the koalas live," Mr Harman said.
