The footage, captured by Chris Winter in his garden, shows a female koala bear carrying a cub on her back as she makes her way across the roof of a shed.

She attempts to jump to a nearby tree but fails to leap the required distance and falls heavily to the ground.

Fortunately, the bear and her baby weren't injured in the fall and can be seen successfully climbing the tree at the end of the video.
