Woman Grabs Possum By The Tail & Escorts It Out Of Texas Bar, Wins The Hearts Of Country Boys Everywhere

Possum Texas bar
Banita Creek Hall

Wife material?

We’ve all seen some wild stuff at the bar. I’m talking about things that can never be spoken of again for the rest of eternity, and it’s not for the faint of heart.

But this right here?

This would’ve probably been the last thing I’d expect to see whenever I step foot into the local bar on a Friday night.

Here we have a good ol’ possum that was somehow able to sneak in from the outside of Banita Creek Hall in Nacogdoches, Texas, and was more than likely wreaking havoc on all of the customers who were just trying to pound some beers and get a few line dances in.

Of course, you can imagine that the possum was probably even more afraid of the customers, than the customers were of it, and probably thought it had somehow made its way into the Twilight Zone.

But luckily enough, one blonde haired woman in cowgirl boots wasn’t afraid of the creature, and simply picked it up by its tail and escorted it out the door, so it could roam free with all of the other possums in its natural habitat.

Banita Creek Hall wrote in a Facebook post:

“Not all heroes wear capes, sometimes they’re a southern belle who obviously aren’t afraid of anything, needless to say your next rounds are on us 

We can’t blame our LITTLE critter friends for wanting to have a little fun at closing time too”

God bless Texas women, amirite?

Alaskan Woman Removes Opossum From Brooklyn Bar While Everybody Else Panics

Growing up in BFE South Carolina, you get used to little critters like opossums and raccoons making their way to the front porch, and hell, occasionally inside the house.

It’s all good, ya just shew ’em away with a broom, or grab ’em by the tail and carry them out… and go on with your day.

However, I can imagine it’s a bit more unusual up in Brooklyn, New York, as an opossum wandered into a bar there recently. I mean, let’s be honest… folks in Brooklyn ain’t the type to know (or want to know) how to handle critters.

However, folks from Alaska… well, that’s just a Tuesday for them.

Sara Fulton was hanging outside of Temkin’s Bar in Brooklyn, when she noticed a large creature run inside after leaving the door open, according to NBC 4 New York. 

She recalled the wild occurrence:

“I was outside hanging out with my friend outside the bar, the door was open and then all of a sudden we see this critter run in and we looked at each other, and we just were like, ‘Was that a dog? Is that a rat?

We both looked at each other and were like, ‘That was too big to be a rat! It has to be an opossum.'”

Luckily enough, Fulton is from Alaska, where these instances aren’t nearly as strange as in Brooklyn:

“I’m from Alaska and I used to go camping with black bears hanging out at my campsite.

I think it was just instinctual, I just like went up to him and I was like, ‘hey I know you’re afraid’ … and I was like ‘alright, I think I’m just gonna scruff you and take you out because that would be the least painful for you.'”

Video shows her picking the critter up by the scruff, and walking it right outside the bar.

The customers in the bar were losing their mind, and the staff was panicking considering the only creatures they’re used to are rats and cockroaches big enough that you can put a saddle on them.

Bartender Rachel Bessemer joked about the customers’ reactions:

“I mean everybody just lost their minds, we couldn’t believe it was happening. I grabbed my phone, didn’t know who to call, I was like, ‘this is not what people do.’

Everyone bought her so many rounds, it turned into a party afterward.”

Of course, what felt like another day on the job for Fulton, turned out to be a culture shock for everybody else.

She weighed in on the other customers’ responses:

“They’re like ‘you’re a hero, you’re a celebrity.’ I’m like, what? No. For me, it’s just a wild animal. But I have to realize I’m not in Alaska, and that’s not something you see everyday.” 

Bouncing a random opossum from the bar gets you free drinks in Brooklyn… take note country folks.
