It's going to be hard for this guy to go the rest of his life knowing he was outsmarted by a group of coward marsupials.


A man in Lancaster, Pennsylvania went to war with a group of opossums who were living in his yard last week. Last Wednesday night, he tried to smoke them out by lighting a pile of leaves on fire in his backyard.

The fire got out of control, spread to his house and burned it down. Fortunately no one was killed in the fire, but a firefighter had to go to the hospital with a shoulder injury.

There's no word on whether the guy accomplished his goal and got the opossums to leave or if he's going to be facing any charges.

The fire department said he told them he also has a problem with bees. Can't wait to see how he tries to deal with them.
