'Happiness': Koala Rescued From Australia Bushfires Scoffs Down Leaves

Simon the koala happily munched on eucalyptus leaves at a sanctuary in South Australia as he recovered from injuries sustained in bushfires at Birdwood.

“Happiness is the sounds of Simon munching gum leaves!” the Minton Farm Animal Rescue Centre said in a Facebook video of Simon enjoying his favourite meal.
