I had never heard of this before; cows have been stomping koalas to death as the harmless little creatures cross the cows' turf to their trees.
Quote:ORPHANED joey Paulie is the littlest and luckiest survivor of Victoria's killer cows, who attack koalas when they try to change trees.
The five-month-old koala lost his mum when a herd of bovines trampled her to death as she crossed their paddock at Mirboo North.
Many koalas are killed or injured each year when territorial cows with calves at heel act in concert to circle and trample koalas when they go to ground to change trees.
