The 2009 fires in the bush of Australia affected a lot of wildlife, including koalas. While they are very cute, they're generally not very friendly creatures, but a firefighter happened upon a hurt and scared koala, who was also quite thirsty.
Here's the footage.
Here's a followup video of "Sam" the koala. You can see that Sam's feet are still in bandages.
After the videos, there are also related links to further videos of Sam.
