THE koala that was the “face of progress” on the front page of Wednesday’s Gold Coast Bulletin has been put down.

Shortly after being photographed exhausted and thirsty on Tuesday afternoon at a Pimpama development which had been recently cleared, Ash the female koala was taken to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital to rest overnight.
Senior vet Michael Pyne yesterday confirmed the animal was euthanised on Wednesday.

He said it had chlamydia so badly its kidneys were about to fail.

“We gave her a full check-up the morning after she came in, including X-rays and ultrasounds,” Dr Pyne said.

“Sadly she had advanced chlamydia and was going into renal failure.

“When they are that sick they don’t even have the energy to get up into the trees.”

The chlamydia disease is rampant in many koala colonies and causes blindness through to eventual death.
