A concerned citizen reports:
federal bldg. causeway at lomasny. some sort of giant rat like creature walking around. looks like rat with a raccoon body the size of a med size cat!
sounds like an opossum
I didn't know there were possums in the city. Then again, I didn't know Brookline had bears.
Just not so many by North Station, perhaps.
Most people are not used to see them in an urban context, but they're here. That rat tail is always a shocker if you don't know what it is. And, neat fact, they are marsupials.
yep, thinking of starting an opossum farm on Warwick st. They come in droves in the fall as fallen fruit starts to rot
could be a nutria. darker than a possum.
There are no Nutria in Boston. If it wasn't an opossum it could've been a muskrat that came up from the river.
I'm not going to post a youtube link to a 70s song about amorous muskrats.
Nope. Not me. Promise.
There don't seem to be wild nutria in any part of New England, let alone Boston, so this is pretty unlikely.
They're even up for adoption these days.
80 feet up the Zakim bridge, then shoot it with a tranquilizer gun.
