'Possum Call Handled By Sheriff's Department

Some days, the calls to the Putnam County sheriff's department are more unusual than other days. On Saturday, sheriff's deputy Jamie Hunter was dispatched to a home on Glenn Road about three o'clock in the morning "in reference to an opossum in the closet." Hunter and Deputy Matthew Hickey "made contact with the opossum in the closet." The report says "we used a broom and a trash can to remove the animal and let it go outside." No word on how it got inside to begin with.
