Last night, Susan Labandibar of South Boston fired up her copy of Citizens Connect, the mobile app that lets you report problems to the city and see what other people have reported (appless version). As you might expect, it's been dominated of late by reports of potholes and homeowners refusing to shovel their sidewalks. But Labandibar also saw this South Boston report:
Possum in my trash can. Can't tell if it's dead. Barrel in back of 168 west 9th. How do I get this removed?
11:15PM Walked over to West Ninth Street. It’s about three blocks from my house. Locate trash can behind house. Possum? Check. Living? Yep.
Turned the trash can on its side. Walked home. Good night, sweet possum.
Possums sure like their Boston trash cans.
