Dog Returns with a Baby Ringtail Possum on His Back

Occurred on October 17, 2022 / Melbourne, Australia

Info from Licensor: I was dog-sitting for someone in an outer suburb. My puppy walked into the house acting weird and I soon discovered he has a baby possum on his back. I got it off with a towel, put it outside wrapped up under the tree hoping the mum would come back for it. After a few hours, I took it to the local vet hospital who checked it, said it was healthy, and moved it to the local wildlife carer who will rehabilitate it and return it to its area when ready :) it’s an Australian Ringtail possum and I’m located in Melbourne, Australia.
