Hanging out at the Silver Lake Reservoir


Photos by Amy Seidenwurm

SILVER LAKE — An opossum turned the chain link fence around the Silver Lake Reservoir into a climbing wall this morning. Amy Seidenwurm took some photos as the opossum carrying babies in its sack scaled the fence but then there was trouble – it appeared to get stuck at the top and could not come down, prompting a rescue. Animal control officers were called and brought the opossum back down, Seidenwurm said.






  1. So glad they helped a lady out!

  2. I’d heard that it was confederate veterans who brought opossums to Southern California after the Civil War, but no mention of that in this LA Times article: http://www.latimes.com/style/la-hm-opossum28jun28-story.html

  3. Where was Proper Dos to throw rocks at it?

  4. In the last photo, that possum actually looks cute.

  5. Yeah I don’t think it was stuck
