An opossum in Madison, Wisconsin had to be saved by police because its "privates" got stuck on a fence.

I love animals but there are definitely some on the bottom of my list of favorites. That would include the opossum. I'm not a huge fan but I don't want to see them get hurt.

I want to give a quick warning because this story could be a little sensitive to any gentlemen about to read it.

According to,

"MPD's commitment to high-quality service is in no way limited to only humans.
On this fateful day, officers were dispatched to an opossum sitting atop a 4 foot high, wood fence. Noting that this majestic creature appeared stuck on the fence, officers assessed it to be potentially in need of assistance and began efforts to contain him.
Then, they discovered the direst of circumstances. Anatomical items of said creature were caught in the fence slats. It is taught in the academy to show empathy for those we interact with. This delicate situation brought on the utmost empathy for the opossum."

The animal fully cooperated with officers. After the daring rescue, the opossum was fine, besides maybe his pride. He left the scene immediately.

This is painful just thinking about.
