It is funny, but it IS a staged fake; the left-hand "photograph" on
the poster is from the Wikipedia article on opossums (as of the time
the image originally started circulating; that photo has since been
replaced and is not in the opossum article any longer). So, the
person who made the poster was pulling a stunt, deliberately - there
never was any such person who found any such animal.
