Lewis The Rescue Koala Dies Days After His Rescue

Ellenborough Lewis, the koala who was rescued last week from massive wildfires in Australia has died.

Port Macquarie Koala Hospital made the decision to euthanize Lewis Tuesday after inspecting his wounds.

"(Our) number one goal is animal welfare, so it was on those grounds that this decision was made".

According to CNN, the fires have been devastating to the region's koala population.

More than 350 of the marsupials are believed to have been killed by the fires, according to experts.
