Opos­sum in tree

Fortean Times - - Letters -

For two weeks I tried to lo­cate the source of a hor­ri­ble rot­ting odour that had per­me­ated the front of my house. When my neigh­bours be­gan to no­tice buz­zards in my front yard, that gave away the mys­tery. Pock­ets, my cat, was chas­ing an opos­sum on the roof and the opos­sum leapt off the roof into a holly tree and got its hind legs so tightly wedged in the fork of the branches it hung up­side-down while the blood ran to its head and killed it. This re­minded me of sto­ries I had read where hunters found deer with their hoofs wedged in the fork of trees – most likely the work of Big­foot. Greg May Or­lando, Florida
