Luck runs out

johnboy 16 July 2008

Megan Doherty at the Canberra Times brings the sad news that Lucky the Koala has passed away.

    She was in a lot of pain and struggling to live without support, leading authorities to believe that the most humane option was to put her down.

While many thought Lucky would never make it, after the burns she suffered during the 2003 fires, apparently she actually lived to a ripe old age as koalas measure these things.

The other great fire survivor moves on to the other side… Not a good omen for the Chief Minister?
