Orphaned Baby Koala Story Has A Happy Ending

Jimmy's mom was killed by a car in 2009, and he was rescued, when he weighed just over a pound, by the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. The hospital raised him, took these ludicrously adorable pictures for us to squee over, and then released him back into the wild!

According to the Koala Hospital, "In July 2010 he was released into a safe area and appears to have settled well in his new home in the bush."
