This Scottish reporter was tricked into wearing full protective gear to hold a fearsome Aussie drop bear

So we got another one and the funny thing is that the reporter, Debi Edward, is Scottish like me and in Scotland the haggis is the equivalent of the Aussie drop bear where we can warn tourist to look out for them! She will be forever always welcome in Australia and be ‘shouted ‘a beer for taking it in such good part.

‘Goodonyer’ Debi.

  1. Well, the Scottish reporter may have been right to feel a little bit of trepidation. Years ago as a teenager, I tried to pet a male koala sitting on his keeper’s hip (after being invited to do so, of course).

    The koala, who had previously been sleeping before being brought out to meet the humans, half-heartedly cuffed my arm as I petted his back.

    It didn’t hurt too much, his long claws just grazed my arm a little.

    I was told he was normally very laid back, but he must be still feeling a little too sleepy and not as aware as he normally is.

    But gee, he had soft fur… 😊
