But after a few seconds, the Aussie realized her mistake. She found a real Tasmanian devil under the couch, looking exactly like the stuffed animal.

The little animal must have got in through the dog door. And then it found a safe place to hide.

Kirsten contacted the local national park. The animal was eventually taken away and released into the wild:

Tasmanian devils are rather curious creatures. In Australia, it's not uncommon for them to sneak up on people's houses in search of food.
