Woman discovers opossum living in daughters' closet


Published in Weird News

(UPI) An Ohio woman said she thought her young daughters' imaginations were running wild for three days until she discovered an opossum living in their closet.

Caitlin Burch said in a Twitter post responding to Chrissy Teigan's escaped pet hamster story that she had her own struggle with a loose animal in the house.

Burch shared a photo of the animal lurking among the toys in the closet.

"Hi this possum was living in my children's bedroom for 3 days before we believed them," she tweeted.


Burch said her daughters had been complaining for three days about a "creature" in their closet, but she and her husband checked out the room and decided they were playing make-believe.

She said her husband carried the opossum outside and released it into the woods.
