When koala was stuck up a power pole for two days without food, shade or water during a heatwave in Darling Downs, Queensland, Australia, it was a cherry picker that eventually came to its rescue.

WWF-Australia released video of the animal being rescued and released back into the wild, with a warning that excessive tree-clearing were pushing koalas into developed areas. They said the young koala was swooped by magpies.
