(UPI) — A Texas woman had an early holiday surprise when she found an opossum hiding in the branches of her Christmas tree.

A video posted to TikTok by brettbratt359 shows the opossum hiding inside the adorned tree inside the woman’s home.   The woman said in a follow-up video that she does not know how the animal got inside her home, as no doors had been left open.

She said she heard noises after arriving home from work, but initially thought they were coming from one of her three dogs or her cat.   She eventually got up to investigate the sounds and saw a “long rat tail” sticking out from her tree.

The woman donned rubber gloves and attempted to pull the animal from out of the tree, but it was clinging tightly to a branch.   She was able to pull the opossum free, but it broke from her grasp and fled under a couch.   The animal fled from furniture item to furniture item until the woman was able to “tackle him like an NFL football player.”

The woman said the opossum, which she was able to carry outside, was not mean or aggressive during the encounter, just skittish.   “As an animal lover… I probably would have kept it if it didn’t smell so horrid,” the woman said.

For those that don’t know what this is all about…..

Longtime listeners of The WSGW Morning Team Show know we have been “Goat Watching” for years.   We think we first started in 1995.   What is “Goat Watch”?   We discovered this Christmas tradition Gavle, Sweden, because of a story of the goat burning.   We then found out the goat had burned a number of times since the goat was first erected in 1966.   We then found out there was a “Goat Cam”.   Well, how could we resist.   We started “Goat Watching” to see if the goat burned or survived each Christmas season.   Since we first started watching, more often than not, the goat has burned!   Click the link for more on the story of the goat and the “Goat Cam”!
