Wandering Koala Stops Traffic in Australia

A curious koala brought traffic to a halt in Queensland, Australia, on Saturday, when he decided to go for a stroll in the middle of Brisbane Valley Highway. Cars and bicyclists stopped to watch and snap pictures as the marsupial wandered in the middle of two lanes, and didn’t seem to care that he was being trailed by a police officer. The incident was caught on video and shared on Facebook, where it’s been viewed more than 2.5 million times. The officer was eventually able to guide the koala off the road and safely back into a tree.
