Sam the Australian Koala is Nature World's New Superstar

Sam the Koala captured Australians’ hearts during the Victorian bush fires when firefighter David Tree stopped to give her a drink amid the devastation (second picture).

While Sam (a female Koala) has been recuperating from her bushfire injuries, she now has an agent, TressCox lawyers, to help manage her sudden rise to fame. Mr David Tree has also engaged an agent, Di Rolle, to organize his talk show schedules on German and US stations.

However, a feud has broken out between the two parties, with Sam’s agent claiming that David Tree does not have the koala’s interests at heart.

I’m sure all Sam wants to do is kick back in a gum tree and rest! Stats for Animals with Media Agents Trending: Older & Mild
