這隻無尾熊叫做Sam。

在今年二月澳洲維多利亞州熱浪與森林大火的黑色星期六當日,Sam向消防隊員要水喝。Sam因為感染依原體病菌導致cysts(膀胱)發病,四歲大的Sam在接受手術後,依然不治。這種疾病目前嚴重威脅當地無尾熊的生存數量。

Article from:  Australian Associated Press

SAM the koala, made famous by footage of her drinking from a firefighter's water bottle during Melbourne's summer bushfires, has died.

The four-year-old koala lost her life on Thursday after undergoing surgery to remove cysts associated with chlamydia, a disease which has ravaged Victoria's koala population.

Peita (Peita) Elkhorne, from TressCox (TressCox) Lawyers, which represents Sam and the Southern Ash Wildlife Shelter where she had recuperated, confirmed her death.

"It is a sad day,'' Ms Elkhorne said.
