We have no idea what's going on here -- but Altadenablog reader, the always-raw Revvell Revati (and we mean that in a good way!) found this during this morning's walk.
The photo's a little unclear (and we've blotted out the phone number) -- but the creature pictured is a possum.
As Homer Simpson once said (when he found a mama possum and her brood on the monrail he was driving -- don't ask), "I've named her Bitey."
And this story reminds us a little of this Snopes entry.
