Police in Brisbane, Australia, found an unexpected stowaway while arresting a 50-year-old woman on "outstanding matters." 

Before taking her to the police station, officers asked if she wanted to declare anything and she proceeded to tell them that her green canvas bag had a koala inside, according to CNN

"Not quite believing their ears the officers cautiously un-zipped the bag and found this gorgeous (koala)," Queensland Police Service said in a statement

Queensland Police are still looking into claims that the woman found the baby koala the previous night. 

The 6-month-old koala, which weighed about 3 pounds, was handed over to Australia's Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. 

“He’s been on fluids but is doing well,” an RSPCA spokesman told the police department.
