WINDSOR, Maine — A Maine State Police officer went above and beyond to save a baby opossum last Friday.

The baby marsupial was found alone on the side of a road in Windsor after its mom was hit by a car, according to Sgt. Bethany Couturier, who rescued the opossum.

The opossum was taken to Misfits Rehab in Auburn where it will be rehabilitated and released.
