A customer called us in an absolute panic, she said there was an opossum in her kitchen cabinets and she did not know what to do and of course she was terrified. Can you imagine opening your cabinet to grab a pot and a giant opossum is staring back at you? Me either! We sent a technician out to her home immediately to see what we could do to help her.
When the tech arrived the customer was on the edge of hysterics, she showed him where she had last seen the opossum and he was still there. Of course the animal was scared as well and not happy to be outside of his natural environment. When the tech opened the other cabinet door, the opossum hissed at him and bared his teeth. At that moment the tech knew he had to remove this guy and get him back to his normal home.
He went to his truck, put on his kevlar gloves and grabbed a catch pole. He went back inside and suprisingly enough he wrangled the animal pretty quickly and safely had him in a cage within minutes. The customer was very grateful and couldnt thank him enough. He took the animal to a wildlife area and released him safely.
Another happy customer, another animals life saved!
