Mr David Tree has expressed frustration at the way the media has dealt with the story of Sam. As media has already reported, Sam was a victim of the Delburn Complex fires the week before the Black Friday and Mr Tree says he finds the way the media has reacted as "appauling" saying that because they've realised there were no deaths directly associated with the incident in which Sam was burned that they've suddenly turned negative towards the story.
Mr Tree says it shouldn't matter and was quick to assure people that the fires he was dealing with at Mirboo North were still a serious threat to properties and lives even though nobody was killed. He states that the story was innocent and that he doesn't even know how the story got into the media's hands. He never gave any permission for the story to be released. He'd sent the photo to some friends and the young man who took the video put it on youtube and it got taken out of context by the media who made it seem like it was related to the fires of Saturday even though it was clearly stated that it was from the Mirboo North fires.
Mr Tree is concerned about the way the media have treated him by throwing cameras in his face and he said he only wanted the video for his daughter who loves animals. He stated he has a love for the enviroment and he would have done the same thing even if it had been a lizzard.

SAM the world's most famous koala came face to face with her saviour in gold yesterday, Country Fire Authority volunteer David Tree.
Mr Tree was close to tears when he was reunited with his new furry friend at the Mountain Ash Wildlife Shelter in Rawson, where Sam is recovering from third degree burns to her paws.
The pair became accidental faces of the devastating bushfires when Mr Tree gave an exhausted Sam a drink from his water bottle in the middle of burnt-out bush in Mirboo North.
The photograph has been picked up by major news agencies around the world.
"Who knows if she recognised me or not but I would like to think so," Mr Tree said.
"I got a bit choked up because it has been such an emotional week. It was just good to see her doing well."
Sam was having her dressing changed by carer Colleen Wood when Mr Tree arrived.
...
"This has been a really tough week for everyone so it is good to have one happy ending," Mr Tree said.
"She was pretty friendly, she gave me a bit of a sniff and we touched noses."
Meantime, a US gossip website is facing a reader backlash after trying to make fun of firefighter David Tree's rescue of Sam the koala.
In a post about Mr Tree giving his water bottle to the koala he found stumbling through burnt out bushland, TMZ.com wrote:
...
Mr Tree said he was in the middle of backburning at Mirboo North when he saw the stricken koala.
"I could see she had sore feet and was in trouble, so I pulled over the fire truck. She just plonked herself down, as if to say 'I'm beat'," he said.
...
Mr Tree and his brigade then received an emergency call-out to save a house, but minutes later Sam was picked up by wildlife carers.
She is one of 22 koalas, 14 ringtail possums, several wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos that have been handed into Gippsland carers.
The Herald Sun is selling copies of the now famous photograph of Sam and Mr Tree for $20 with all proceeds going to the CFA.
