Edinburgh Zoo welcomes first koala born in UK; given Aboriginal name 'Yooranah' which means 'loving'

January 10, 2014 1:51AM



DESPITE being thought to be the first koala born in the UK, Edinburgh Zoo's recent arrival has been given a decidedly Down Under name.

The joey was born at the zoo last May but keepers waited until he had fully emerged from mother Alinga's pouch before they started to handle him.

After being found to be male, the joey was named Yooranah - the Aboriginal word meaning "loving".

 

Wanted to add that you will see a toy Koala being used in second pic - gives the joey something familiar to hold on to until he gets more used to human contact.

How long does the joey stay in the pouch after it's born?  Just curious.
Hanging on for dear life.  I love it!

I love Koalas.  The joeys are born while still an embryo and crawl into the pouch and live there attached to a teat while it grows and develops fur and it's eyes open around three months. About six to seven months it starts to peek out of the pouch and finally gets courage to venture out.  By the time it is around nine months it will leave the pouch permanently and is then toted about on it's mothers back while learning to climb.  It is weaned and fully independent around 12 months.  The mother will have also fed it a "paste" of chewed eucalyptus leaves in the latter months so the joey is ready to feed for itself.  Then it gets chased away by the mother and she gets ready for another baby.  Twins are very rare.

Wow!  Thanks for the information.  So Koalas don't band together, like say monkeys?  So fascinating.

Sister they are solitary animals in the wild and the only bonding is with a mother and joey until the joey is old enough to live independently, usually about 12 months of age.

It is estimated they need about a hundred trees per Koala because they eat such a lot of leaves for their size so there are tree "corridors" retained in a lot of areas close to habitation so they can still live close to towns.

Wow 4 Donks thank you for posting this. I have not seen this in our sports news as American Football is not among the most popular sports here.

Congratulations to Jesse and all the more note worthy that he is an Aboriginal Australian.

Schapelle Corby finally released from Bali’s Kerobokan Jail

 February 10, 2014 11:49AM

SCHAPELLE Corby has been released from jail after more than nine years behind bars in Bali.

Head down and with a scarf under her black, red and white checked hat, Corby was bundled into a prison van in a matter of seconds.

The vehicle then revved away amid a massive media scrum.

After a short drive, Corby, 36, was bundled into the local prosecutor’s office, head still down.

With members of the media scrum literally falling over themselves, Corby was ushered into the building and into an office escorted by guards. The doors were then closed.

Guards had earlier been heard yelling ‘get out, get out, get out’ to Corby as media ambushed the van’s door.

Daniel Morcombe accused pleads not guilty

 February 10, 2014 11:45AM

DANIEL Morcombe's accused killer has pleaded not guilty to murder as his trial gets underway in Brisbane.

Brett Peter Cowan, 44, was clean shaven and wore a grey suit when he entered the dock in the Supreme Court on Monday.

He pleaded not guilty to murdering Daniel Morcombe on December 7, 2003 at the Glass House Mountains in Queensland, and not guilty to indecent treatment of a child and interfering with a corpse.

Cowan appeared before a crowded public gallery that included Daniel's parents Bruce and Denise Morcombe and his two brothers, Bradley and Dean.

A jury panel is now being selected.

Aussies invent new emergency heart drug


February 10, 2014 11:51AM

AUSTRALIAN scientists have invented a new type of clot-busting drug that could save heart attack and stroke victims in an emergency.

The drug, which is designed for use in ambulances and emergency departments, targets the clot rather than the whole circulatory system.

This means a relatively low dose is effective, making it suitable for tens of thousands of Australians at risk from bleeding and other side-effects.

The research is published in the journal Circulation Research, but clinical trials are needed before it is available to doctors. This could take five years.

DAY two of the Daniel Morcombe murder trial. Follow our live coverage.

11.25am: Crown prosecutor Michael Byrne QC said Cowan took the undercover police officers, who he believed were part of the crime gang in Western Australia, to Kings Rd at Beerwah on August 10, 2011, a “secluded spot’’.

He pointed out to the undercover officers where the building was that he took the boy into, by this time it had been removed and sold.

Mr Byrne said Cowan told Fitzy: “I had no intention of knocking him at all, I just wanted to have some fun with him.’’

“I thought he was going to run and rah rah, yeah, I grabbed him back into the house and choked him out,’’ Cowan allegedly told them.

“It’s just that he wouldn’t pay the f***ing game, hey.’’

I know Sister.  So sad that someone could consider such abuse and taking of a life as a game.
Hopefully the game is up for this monster as the jury has now retired to consider their verdict.
I have been following the trial but not posting here as the live feeds keep changing and a lot of it has been legal arguments plus some outlandish excuses from the defence.

Cannot imagine how brave Daniel's family must be to sit in the court room and hear all the details.  May their patience be rewarded with the correct verdict.

March 12, 2014 1:17PM

THE jury poised to decide the fate of Daniel Morcombe’s accused killer Brett Peter Cowan, 44, has retired to consider its verdict.

The jury heard 19 days of evidence and submissions during the trial in the Supreme Court in Brisbane, now in its fifth week.

Cowan, who changed his name to Shaddo N-unyah Hunter, has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Sunshine Coast teenager Daniel Morcombe, his indecent treatment and misconduct with his corpse on December 7, 2003.

Justice Roslyn Atkinson sent the jury of six men and six women to consider its verdict at 12.13pm.

Woman in Qld court over 1994 US kidnapping

March 11, 2014 8:58AM

A WOMAN accused of kidnapping her baby daughter from the United States two decades ago will face an extradition hearing in Queensland.

Dorothy Lee Barnett, 53, is facing charges on Tuesday of international parental kidnapping and making a false statement on a passport application in the US.

After losing custody of her 10-month old daughter Savanna Todd in 1994, Barnett allegedly abducted her from South Carolina during an outing.

Police said Barnett left for a birthday party with her daughter and never returned. A US arrest warrant for Barnett was issued that year.

Girl told Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes 'just a dirty old man', trial told


Australian Associated Press
theguardian.com, Monday 10 March 2014 20.20 AEST   

When an alleged victim of Hey Dad! star Robert Hughes complained to a cast member about his behaviour, she was told he was “just a dirty old man”, a court has heard.

Hughes, 65, has pleaded not guilty to 11 sexual and indecent assault charges stemming from allegations he abused five girls in the 1980s and 90s.

Speaking at his trial on Monday, one of the alleged victims told Sydney’s district court that she had grown to dislike Hughes after a number of alleged incidents.

Brett Cowan guilty of murder of Daniel Morcombe

March 13, 2014 2:18PM

BRETT Peter Cowan has been found guilty of the abduction and murder of teenager Daniel Morcombe in 2003.

The jury has returned shortly before 1pm Thursday to announce their verdict at Brisbane Supreme Court.

It was standing room only in Courtroom No.11 as Cowan was found guilty on three charges of murder, indecent treatment of a child and interfering with a corpse.

The decision follows a 19-day trial which heard from 116 witnesses — and ends a 10-year nightmare for Daniel’s parents and siblings.

Cowan, 44 — also known as Shaddo N-unyah Hunter — had pleaded not guilty to murdering and abducting the Sunshine Coast schoolboy on December 7, 2003.

Justice Roslyn Atkinson is expected to sentence Cowan later today after hearing submissions.

Daniel Morcombe trial: What the jury wasn’t told about Brett Cowan

March 13, 2014 2:41PM

HE twice went to jail for snatch and rape attacks on young boys, lost count of how many other children he’d abused and carried out violent and depraved sexual fantasies on the women he dated.

This was the side of predator Brett Peter Cowan the jury deciding his fate could not be told.

The Courier-Mail can now reveal Cowan’s sadistic past, including that he began abusing children from the age of nine and once told police he’d been sexually active since the age of eight.

 

Warning  :  This article makes for very disturbing reading.  I hope the Judge gives this freak the maximum allowable sentence under our laws.  Bring back the DP.
