If you live in the rural areas of Victoria, Australia, be warned: at least one koala bear has been spotted attempting to steal a car. While the plot was foiled by 15-year old Sam Box, authorities state that the koala is freaking adorable and is considered extremely huggable. You've been warned.

The Koala was found clinging to the steering wheel of the Land Rover the Box family uses on their 200-acre sheep farm. Based on the koala's position in the car, investigators suspect that the koala was waiting for one or two accomplices to operate the pedals and gearshift.

The koala left the scene without incident and remains at large, and still seems to have an intense, adorable desire to drive.
