Possums Have Hitched Rides On Subways For As Long As Subways Have Been Around | Wildlife Removal New Jersey

Anybody who has ever visited New York can tell you that you will certainly see something you have never seen before on, at least, a weekly basis. Not too long ago a few early-bird New Yorkers noticed they were sharing their subway with a furry possum. The possum had apparently boarded the train from its Coney Island Terminus.

Obviously, finding a possum on a subway train is a strange and unusual sight. One reason why this incident is so unique is because possums are typically tree-dwelling animals. They do not typically burrow into the ground unless they need a heated shelter. On the other hand, the possum is nomadic animal, so its preference for traveling through Brooklyn at high speeds is certainly understandable. The possum only got off of the subway after officials had been trying to coax it off for some time. Neither the transit authority nor the police department keeps records of such incidents, but both authorities say that this recent situation is unheard of.

Have you ever caught some wildlife hitching a ride with you while you were traveling?
