“The opossum was found to be acting nasty to the officer that responded,” St. Pierre said. Likely as a defense mechanism, he said.

Efforts to detain the critter were unsuccessful.

“They tried to put a blanket over it,” St. Pierre said. “It scurried down the street and ran down into some wooded area eventually.”
