Koala throws tantrum and cries after friend kicks it out of tree

Koala throws tantrum and cries after friend kicks it out of tree

Two koalas have been caught on camera brawling over prime position on a tree that we assume has the tastiest gum tree leaves. Like most fighting, it’s not a pretty sight – and the losing koala’s yelps and cries does not make for pleasant listening.

The video was uploaded by Alicia Alexander who says there was a good ending as the bullied koala won back his claim on the tree by nightfall.

She writes: “Welcome to a glimpse of what it is like living amongst a wild koala population during mating season! Mating and territory fighting is a regular occurrence during this time of season, and their sounds are terrifying!”
