We all have a bad day every now and then, but this koala has had more than his fair share lately!
Volunteers with Fauna Rescue of South Australia had to save a South Australia koala for a third time after he was in a fence at the SA Power Networks’ Happy Valley substation. The “large male adult” koala was rescued just after 8:30am a few weeks ago after he got caught in the fence.
It wasn’t a great start to the day for this curious ? who got his head stuck in a fence at our Happy Valley substation. A big thank you to Fauna Rescue SA and our St Marys crew who released the Koala and took him into care for a check-up before his release back into the wild. pic.twitter.com/a6wX60AH6c

Fauna Rescue volunteer Sally Selwood explained that it looked “like he’s crawled under the fence to go somewhere, as they do, and then sat up as he was under the fence and got his head caught. But he didn’t have the brains to bob back down again to get out.”
The koala’s story has quickly gone viral, as social media users everywhere can relate to him:
