In Australia, dogs trained to rescue wounded koalas are attracting attention as forest fires occur everywhere and wild koalas are sacrificed one after another.

 

In Australia, there have been many forest fires in the southeastern state of New South Wales this month, and more than 1.65 million hectares have been burned.

There are many wild koalas involved in this forest fire, and according to local media, more than 350 may have died.

Under such circumstances, specially trained dogs are drawing attention to save the damaged koala. This cross-breed dog named "Bear" was specially trained to protect injuries and sick wildlife at a local university.

Koala is usually hidden on a tree and difficult to find with the human eye, so it is possible to find a koala using the sharp smell of a dog.

This is the first time that "Bear" has entered the forest fire scene, and at the time of dispatch, it is attracting attention that it will lead to the rescue of koalas in the future by wearing red socks to protect the legs.
