ENGLEWOOD, Pa. - A Pennsylvania family paid for a Christmas tree, but got a little something extra at no charge.

The O'Connor family bought an eight-foot Douglas Fir and after bringing it home and decorating it, they noticed a possum had made itself at home.

After calling the police, a state game commission deputy picked up the possum and released it about five miles away.
