A British ITV reporter fell for a classic Aussie prank while she donned frame armour to hold a koala.
Debi Edwards was told the animal was once a ‘drop undergo’ – a dangerous predator which plunges from bushes to land on people and assault them with its venomous teeth.
Vacationers have fallen for versions of this for decades, however Debi, FORTY, had never heard of the ruse.
The ITV Information Asia correspondent were given dressed up in protective boots and protection goggles to take cling of the bear.
She panicked whilst preserving it, requesting any person to take it clear of her.
Carers informed her they could have to subdue it with a dart gun as it was getting ready to attack her.
but when they took it off her and cuddled it without wearing any protective gear, she realised she were tricked.
‘F***ing Aussies,’ Debi, from Aberdeen, said at the same time as guffawing.
