New Delhi:

Tom Hanks is the newest celeb to fall in love with Bear, the savoir dog that help detect koalas during the dreadful Australian bushfire. The Oscar winner star is so moved by the canine’s contribution that he wants Disney to make a movie on his koala rescue mission. Disney, are you taking notes?

Bear is a koala detection dog and has been deployed to an area in Australia which has been hit hard by a bushfire.

Tom Hanks came across the incredible story of Bear when Tweeple asked Hanks to read a bunch of nice tweets to get everyone in a positive mindset following which he came across Bear’s story.

"This is a Disney movie that must be made - the story of Bear, the koala detection dog," Hanks said. "That's adorable’’ he added on discovering the story from the tweet.

Bear belongs to the International Fund for Animal Welfare Australia (IFAW) and is being looked after by handlers at Detection Dogs for Conservation.

"A dog's sense of smell is up to 10,000 times stronger than that of humans. We train formerly-sheltered, highly-active dogs-who may otherwise never be adopted-to sniff out koala scat and fur," IFAW’s website says.

"By locating the scat, and in some cases the koalas themselves, we can collect data about the genetics and health of the local koala population. We can also use this data to protect individual animals and conserve ecosystems."
