What exactly happened to the possum, however, remains a mystery. Calls made by The New York Times to the New York Animal Care and Control went unanswered. A tweet posted by @SubwayPossum on Wednesday read, "So snarling = RESISTING arrest now? I told 'em my brother's a cop on Long Island, but they said after the ticket-fixing thing no more favors." This possibly alludes that the tree rat is alive and doing well.
