I was reading the news the other day and ran across this in several publications.
This little opossum was found on a the subway system in NYC. From the various articles I read people thought it was a huge rat and the riders had to evacuate the train. I am from NYC and would hope to know the difference between a rat and an opossum.
Good ending was that animal control came and was able to re-release the opossum somewhere else.
Here is a link to another opossum ending up in places they shouldn’t be!
