Bush Fires result in Drop Bear casualties in City Parks...
Due to the devastating bushfires in South Australia, native marsupials like the dreaded drop bear are losing their habitats and moving into city parks where they and the local humans are at risk.
Australians are rallying together to support each other in this time of need. New Zealand is also helping by sending medical and firefighting experts. I wonder how the native animals could be saved? You may have seen the poor koala on the news with the bandaged legs.
This might give us cause to wonder if what we read is always reliable information. As it turns out, the koala in question was filmed a week before it was sent around the world as a "breaking story". You might also want to research the existence of drop bears and critically analyze your sources of information.
