ABERDEEN, Md. (WJZ) — An Aberdeen police officer rescued baby opossums after their mother was struck and killed by a train.

In a video posted by the department, a female officer is seen pulling a baby opossum from the mother’s marsupial pouch.

Officers had received a report that a mama opossum with babies was struck by a train behind the Frito Lay plant on Hickory Drive.

Three baby opossums had survived and were scooped off the tracks.

That’s when the officer saw a fourth one squirming inside the mother.

All four baby opossums were taken to a wildlife rescue by officers.
