DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) — Usually when you head out to your car, you don’t expect to run into wildlife. On his way out of work Thursday, KWQC Producer Nick Vlasin noticed a possum sitting on top of the front left tire of his car. Nick got in his car, started the engine and began backing up (slowly) expecting the possum to jump off. It didn’t.
The possum continued to climb the tire like a hamster wheel, doing what it took to stay toward the top. Eventually, after some maneuvering and a lot of horn honking, it hopped off. The possum has not been seen since.
