A couple was surprised to see an orphaned baby marsupial that clung to the back of their long-haired shepherd dog.

The couple does not know how long the opossum was on Kato at that moment, but said he did not seem surprised at the hitchhiker.

Mrs. Watkinson said: & # 39; Jon spent the rest of the afternoon investigating rescue in the wild and eventually had to take Kato to a nearby vet to have them take the opossum. & # 39;
The opossum spent at least three hours holding on to Kato & # 39; s long dreaded fur.
& # 39; I think he [the opossum] will be fine. He is probably not completely weaned yet, but seemed good enough and clung to his sweet life, "she told Facebook friends.
& # 39; He has found the right dog for that. His eyes were still clear and the rescue of wildlife will take care of him. & # 39;

Her husband had recently seen opossum catchers in the area and would call them to see if he could find out what had happened to the parent.
She said that in some cases parent and baby can be successfully reunited, but only if it happens quickly.
Watkinson also said she believes the baby should be fed by hand for a while.
It spent last night at the vet's but is expected to be handed over to a caretaker of wildlife.
