Your Trash Smells Delicious

It’s late at night and you hear something outside. Curious, you move closer to a window, peek outside, and see a pair of small eyes looking back at you. These eyes appear to belong to an animal searching for food –  and the food it's searching for is in your trash can.

When you go outside to investigate further, you see the animal climb out of the trash can and hurry away. In the dim light, you could barely make out what the animal is –  a Virginia Opossum!
