Koala found dead with cash in mouth

A koala has been found dead outside a Victorian police station with $50 stuffed into its mouth.

A police officer in the state's southwest made the grisly discovery when he went outside after hearing a noise on Saturday night.

A police spokeswoman said there was no clear motive for the $50 being left with the koala and authorities were not sure if a criminal offence had occurred.

The koala, which was found outside Heywood police station, has since been buried and the money was logged in a property book.
