Our story comes from our diligent N. C. associate Angus.
Thanks guys. It's a very tense moment here in North Carolina where I have just discovered a strange creature lurking about in my back yard! I was immediately brought into the house and my humans are calling animal control as I speak.
I heard they are calling this creature an opossum! I looked up some information and found out that an opossum is a marsupial mammal native to North America. This one was probably just emerging from hibernation. I also learned that these guys have lots and lots of sharp little teeth! So just as well I leave him to the experts. I will update this story as it develops. Back to you now.
Thanks Angus. We'll be eagerly awaiting further news about this amazing find! And now we return you to your regularly scheduled program.
