CHRISTCHURCH: A strange situation arose last week in the Otago area of New Zealand when a woman called the police station and said that a small animal ‘Possum’ had been holding her hostage for the past several hours and that the house Can’t get out
Posum, also called aposum, is a small harmless animal that feeds its babies while holding newborns in a natural pouch on its belly.
This was the reason why the police station officials did not believe in this phone call at first but after repeated insistence of the woman, a duty officer was sent to the address given by her.
Seeing the police car, the woman came to the window of her house and called the duty officer nearby and started talking to him.
It was only then that the officer noticed the rustling of an animal’s claws on his leg. He looked down and saw that it was really an apocalypse trying to attack the officer.
He immediately heard Aposum for a moment with a bright flashlight and grabbed him and locked him in the cage he had brought with him.
Police say Aposum has been left safely in the jungle several kilometers from the woman’s home and hopes he will no longer harass her.
The woman told a correspondent for the local newspaper, the Otago Daily Times, that the incident took place in the morning as she was leaving her home for university.
Before she could open the door of her car, she was attacked by an apocalypse from an unknown direction.
Frightened, she ran into the house and locked the door from the inside. After that he tried to get out from time to time but every time he would attack Aposum and he would have to be locked in the house again.
Being homeless in the Sansan area, she could not call any of the neighbors for help, so she called the police station.
And so, after spending many hours in the hands of an opposer, he was liberated.
New Zealand police are also surprised because the opossum is a peaceful and relaxed animal that does not attack anyone.
However, his bizarre behavior suggests that he may have been someone’s pet or that he was recently separated from his mother.
