Koala Bears

I am seeing rescuers handling koala bears without any resistance at all. Are koalas so gentle that they can be handled like that, or are they literally half dead and can't bite?

I saw one picture of a kangaroo being given water, but the guy was very respectful and stayed well back of its head while it drank. I think that kangaroos are dangerous, but they are also being handled easily.

I have always been scared of Australia because of its spider population, but I feel so bad about this situation. And, I am wondering what they are going to feed the rescued animals. Where are they going to get stuff from?

People come first, but the pictures are heartbreaking. What are they going to do with all those displaced animals??

Australia, we're with you.
