Veterinarian Robyn Stenner with a koala that was severly injured by a domestic dog. They worked on this animal for five hours and it died on the table. “I sure wish I could have saved you, sweetie,’ Robyn said.



Four hours of surgery wasn’t enough to save this female koala, whose abdomen was crushed by dogs. Robyn Stenner, a surgeon at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, says that the injury is common, “But it always breaks your heart.”
