Opossum found living in child’s bedroom for 3 days before anyone noticed

TAMPA (WFLA) – Usually, a child has stuffed animals all over their room, not actual animals!

In a viral tweet directed at Chrissy Teigen responding to her hamster fiasco of the day, Caitlin Burch tweeted a picture of the unwelcomed visitor — and her story.

In an interview with Buzzfeed News, Burch says her 7-year-old insisted that there was something in her room. A few days later the family found an opossum living in the child’s room for three days.

“It had crawled into one of the dresses hanging in the closet,” Burch told Buzzfeed. “It was peeking out of the neck hole.”

It took Burch’s husband about two hours to remove the opossum and send it back out to the wilderness where it belonged.
