Melbourne, January 26: A number of videos and images have emerged ever since the destructive bushfire in Australia. While the majority of them are heartbreaking, few videos also showed the effort behind the massive operations underway to douse the wildfire. A video doing rounds on social media claimed that the fox allowed itself to be fed by the Koala babies. But on closer inspection, it turned out that the video is misleading and is not from the bushfire as claimed on social media. A fact-check has further revealed that the fox was not feeding babies of Koala, but its own kits. Fact Check: Picture Showing Kangaroos Jumping in Rain After Mild Shower in Australia Provides Relief From Wildfire Real or Fake?
