A funny thing happened just outside Geelong, Victoria, Australia, this week – seems like the Koala Bears are car-napping Land Rovers, they seem to especially like the camo versions best!
Sam Box, a 15-year-old boy caught the enterprising Koala in the act of stealing the family Rover – so he grabbed some pictures and alerted the press.
Sam lives on a sheep farm near Geelong and this past week he arrived home from school and found the critter calmly sitting in the family Rover, steering the wheel non-the-less.
The boy tried to scare the animal away, but he was having nothing to do with it as he fumbled for the keys no less.
“He was checking me out as much as I was checking him out,” Box said in an interview with local channel 9.
After the infamous mug shot of the car thief, Sam simply opened the door and the animal abandoned any dreams of taking the Land Rover for a joyride.
