On Friday, an Australian woman uploaded a chilling 43-second video showing her narrow escape from a relentless, seemingly unstoppable beast.

“The koala bloody chased me tonight!” wrote 31-year-old Ebony Churchill on Facebook, adding, “Shit me self.”

Churchill says she was herding cows by ATV when she first spotted the scare bear, which she assumed was climbing a tree. From The Adelaide Advertiser:

“He was close but then he started running towards me and I thought I better speed up (on the quad bike),” she said.

“But the more I sped up, the faster he got.

“I thought if I got further down the track, he would lose interest. I got to the end of the cows and couldn’t go any further so that’s when I bailed off the bike.”

Explaining her animated commentary during the pursuit, Churchill told News.com.au “they’ve got really sharp claws.”
