How much can a koala bear?

For those of my readers with access to today’s Adelaide Advertiser newspaper, there is an amusing sequence of photos of a ‘crow’ (probably a LIttle Raven) harassing a koala.
I’ve seen this type of thing with other species, including an Australian Magpie. On another occasion I witnessed a honeyeater pulling out tufts of fur from a sleeping koala, obviously to line a nest.
The photos have been posted here, but the link may not work after a few days – I’m not sure how long such items remain on the site.
Wow – what an amazing set of photos and much more exciting than Kevin Rudd’s press conference I’m sure.
I suspect that you are quite right about that Alan. Just another politician’s posturing and talkfest – the river needs action now – not more talk.
