Brawling koalas narrowly dodge oncoming truck on Victorian road

Road rage seems to be a common occurrence captured on video, but it’s not every day warring koalas are captured brawling.

For Victorian woman Sharon Brecely, the sight she saw on Thursday on the Portland-Nelson Road in Portland left her stunned.

“I stopped first and tooted the horn for a little while and they weren’t going to move,” she said.

The quick-thinking wildlife advocate leapt into action. She pulled over, stepped out of her car and urged the fighting marsupials to step off the road.

But a more immediate threat dawned on both her and the animals.

A truck travelling at 100km/h was travelling straight towards them. In video obtained by 9NEWS, Ms Brecely can be seen waving her arms wildly, urgently urging the truck driver to avoid striking the animals.

“I thought ‘oh no, they’re gonners!'” she said.

“My thoughts, were ‘Oh no the poor koalas! I’ve got slow him down’.

“That was my first thought, to slow the truck down to save the koalas.”

Thankfully for all concerned, the driver saw her and moved into the emergency lane, missing the koalas by mere centimetres.

Ms Brecely praised the truck driver for saving precious lives.

“I’d thank him heaps,” she said.

“He was great, if he didn’t do that, if he didn’t slow down and move he would’ve collected them both.

“They wouldn’t have had a hope. They were on his side of the road and, yeah, they both would’ve been gonners.”

But still the furry creatures seemed more interested in each other. Ms Brecely was not done, and continued to shout at the pair to move to the roadside.

She briefly returned to her car to grab a towel she keeps inside in case she spots injured wildlife.

“I’ve never seen them fighting on the road before. But it’s not unusual to see koalas on the road, I’ve moved several off. There’s a lot that get hit between Portland and Heywood,” she said.

The stubborn creatures of the bush seemed destined to ignore her and one of the male koalas stared blankly at her.

“They’re so silly, they’re so slow,” she said.

Ms Brecely contemplated trying to lift them to safety.

“I was thinking about picking them up but they were pretty big,” she said.

“I think, the biggest one probably weighed about 20 kilos. He was heavy. And they were angry so I wasn’t going to pick them up.”

Eventually the brawling pair fled into bushes away from the harm of the road and dangers of traffic.

Ms Brecely’s brave actions have been praised by wildlife experts.

“It’s fabulous to see people so concerned about our wildlife and we really encourage that,” Zoe Rowell, a zookeeper at Melbourne Zoo, said.

“It’s great that she used her voice to sort of move them on and you could, if safe to do so, position your car so that it would encourage them to move off the road.”

Ms Rowell issued advice to others found in Ms Brecely’s situation.

“First thing to make sure is to keep yourself safe,” the zookeeper said.

“Keep personal safety front of mind. Keep in mind wildlife can turn on you.

“As cute as cuddle as koalas look, they can get quite aggressive as you can see them tumbling around there.

“They’re having a bit of rough and tumble, so obviously you don’t want to get involved in that either.”

A large part of Ms Brecely’s life has been dedicated to wildlife. Her daughters are carers and her mother-in-law has worked with animals for 30 years.

Her property is almost a zoo of its own. She’s caring for six cats, with four of those her daughters’. She’s also looking after her daughter’s dog as well as having five of her own.

She also has a bird, a horse and a cow.

“We’re into animals,” she said.

“We love our animals!”

But there’s a serious side to this story – koala numbers in some parts of Australia are in decline due to deforestation. It’s estimated there are less than 80,000 left in the wild.

“There’s local areas where koalas are endangered but there’s other areas where they’re overpopulated,” Ms Rowell said.

“It’s about moving the overpopulated ones to the areas where they can sustain themselves.

“Things like roads go through their territories, so um, it’s about making sure they’ve got a safe passage and they’ve got enough areas to sustain themselves.”

Ms Brecely said her love of animals will never diminish, and if put in the same situation on a busy road, would do it all again.

“Oh definitely, definitely. We’ve come from a wide, long list of um, wildlife carers, definitely get them off the road Not just koalas, any wildlife I’d get off the road.”
