A chubby woman was caught on camera stealing treats from his rescuers’ food bin years after he was treated and set free.
Magoo the wombat was taken in by NSW’s Cedar Creek Wombat Rescue and Hospital after his family got involved in a car accident.
After the marsupial, who was known for his big appetite, was treated, the rescuers released him back into the wilderness. Little did they know, however, that the wombat wouldn’t say goodbye to their treats for good.
While years have passed since the wombat’s rescue, Mr. Magoo still returns to the shelter in search of food on a regular basis.
“He is a gentle soul,” rescue center owner Roz Holme said in an interview with The Dodo in which she explained how the staff often catch him in the act of stealing treats from their food bins.
“Sometimes he can get out, but lately I lift him out,” she added, claiming that the chubby wombat had a tad too much to eat and found himself trapped in the food bin during his recent visit.
In another unexpected exchange between humans and animals, a homeowner was left gobsmacked after an unknown horse walked into his house and made itself at home after eating his dinner.
The unannounced visit took place in Dunedin, New Zealand, where a friendly horse named Sharq escaped from her owner to go on an adventure of her own.
Eventually, Sharq made it into the home of Doug Renoe who was stunned to see the horse making herself at home and eating his dinner.
“Is anyone in Highcliff area missing a horse” Doug wrote in his Facebook post.
“This one has come inside, eaten half my dinner and also my wife’s carrots from [the] garden. We will keep her for a pet if not claimed. Doug.”
Soon enough, the hilarious post went viral and the horse’s owner was identified as Ben Telfer-Hynes.
“She’s actually an inside horse, so it was no shock to me when I saw she was lurking inside this man’s home. I’m so glad that she was able to find such a lovely place to reside for a short while,” the owner said in an interview with The Dodo.
