Initially mistaken for a skunk, the officers at the Georgia Street police station were wary of being sprayed by the creature, until Alabama native Radio Officer Thomas Jefferson Woolridge truly identified the creature.
Story related to photograph appears with the article, "Opossum Throws Skunk Scare Into Police," Los Angeles Times, 09 Jan 1936: A1.
While Leo McDonald writes the possum stands by his arm with his mouth open in a sneer. Al Horton holds the animal by the tail while two other men peer at the creature behind them.
