Tales of wombat ‘heroes’ have gone viral. Unfortunately, they’re not true

If you’ve been following the bushfire crisis on social media and elsewhere, you may have seen reports of benevolent wombats herding other animals to shelter into their fire-proof burrows.

These stories went quickly viral – probably reflecting the appetite for good news after the horrors of the bushfire crisis. However, the accounts are not entirely accurate.

Wombats do not heroically round up helpless animals during a bushfire and lead them to safety.

But wombats do help other animals in a different way – even if it’s not their intention.

What do you think?
