Baby opossums always fall from the attic down the walls. I got three here.

I commonly extract dead animal carcasses from homes and property. The very animals that commonly invade houses die inside houses, and when they do, they create a very unpleasant odor as the carcass decays. The successful removal of deceased wildlife definitely requires experience and knowledge of building architecture and animal behavior. I've cut and pried open every nook and cranny imaginable to locate and remove rotting critter bodies. I am the best - I always find the animal, deodorize and decontaminate the area, and seal up the hole I've cut open. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Dead Animals page.

The three little opossums - This is the story of three little opossums that got lost on their way home and decided to spend the night by burrowing into the nearby house’s walls. God knows what happened after that because all anyone knows is that they started giving off an unbearable stench, which made it difficult for the house residents to breathe. That is when they called the knight in the shining (that would be me) to come and save the day for them.

Once I reached, I got down to business immediately and started sniffing around to narrow down the walls of the house where the stench was the strongest. My immediate hunch was that in all likelihood, the carcasses must be present somewhere in the attic. On reaching the attic, I did find traces of opossum waste but no actual dead bodies, leading me back to the walls I had originally thought the stench was coming from.

Since there were no visible dead bodies, it became apparent that the smell was coming from inside the walls. Following my sense of smell and instincts, I started to drill a hole in the corner of the wall where I found the stench to be the strongest. And sure enough, there lay the remains of three baby opossums. Here is what I think must have happened. These babies were born in the attic but the mother must have left them on their own after some time since there was no sign of her anywhere.

When they realized they were without parental guidance, the little opossums decided to enjoy their freedom and perhaps went a little too far. One of them might have fallen off the attic wall to the wall of the room downstairs and the others followed after him. Being in a new place, they were unable to find food or water and hence, died of starvation.
