A family in Tasmania took shelter on their dining table after a small Tasmanian devil was chased by the husband.
The incident happened at around 10pm on Wednesday after the family dog gave a strange bark.
Kirsten, the owner of the dog, then ran downstairs to retrieve the ‘toy’, which looked like a stuffed animal shaped like a Tasmanian devil.
Lynch said that she was able to reach for the toy, which was shot under the couch.
She said that she got a scare because the devil was hiding inside her home.
She lives in Sandy Bay, and she usually leaves her door open for her puppy, which is being trained to use the toilet.
She believed that the devil snuck in after she left the door open.
She and her family were able to take shelter on the dining table while her husband tried to chase the devil away with a broom.
Although it was very cute, it was very unusual. After a couple of minutes, the devil ran away into the bush.
Since it didn’t seem to be hurt, they decided not to call the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.
According to Greg Irons, the director of Bonorong, this time of year is when juvenile animals get into suburban areas.
He said that these animals leave their mothers and go looking for their own way.
