Koala strikes fear into the heart of Mike Tyson11/16/2012
Add koalas to the current list of innocent creatures terrifying tough guys (which also includes horses). What's Mike Tyson, a former world heavyweight champion, tiger owner and ear biter, afraid of? Koalas. Furry little bears who are half asleep most of the time. While in Australia, Tyson declined the opportunity to cuddle up with Tracy the koala for a photo op. Iron Mike explained that "I have seen the TV show 'When Good Animals Turn Bad,'" and added that Tracy was a hotbed of "bacteria." Tyson is in Australia on a speaking tour, which New Zealanders won't be enjoying after he was denied a visa to enter their country due to his 1992 rape conviction. [Source]
