Williamson defended the family, however. “The person that found her was very nervous on how to handle the possum,” he explained on Facebook. “She had lots of fight in her [and] still was trying to bite Ebony and was reluctant to be picked up. [She was] still feisty, which is what we want.”
Fortunately, the furry little fighter was soon rescued by Cody. The vet then quickly tended to the possum’s health needs by drying the animal off. Next, she used her own body heat to warm the possum’s temperature up. She did this by keeping it tucked under her shirt during the car journey home with the possum in tow.
