Pennsylvania Man Arrested After Giving Mouth-To-Mouth To Roadkill
Some people will go to extraordinary lengths to save their pets. Tales of pet owners giving CPR to their cats and dogs are fairly common. But how many folks would try to resuscitate a wild animal?
Possums are prone to play dead, especially when threatened. Their eyes glaze over, their teeth are bared, and they secrete a rank stench from their glands.
But the possum lying along the Colonel Drake Highway on Thursday was doing none of that, troopers said. It was long-dead certified roadkill.
And Donald Wolfe was intent on bringing it back to life, troopers said.
Trooper Jamie Levier of the Punxsutawney barracks said witnesses saw Wolfe, 55, locking lips with the lifeless marsupial about 3 p.m. in a remote area about 80 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
After receiving several calls, troopers arrested Wolfe along an isolated stretch of the highway and charged him with public drunkenness.
Levier says the Brookville man was "extremely intoxicated" and "did have his mouth in the area of the animal's mouth, I guess."
Another person saw Wolfe kneeling before the deceased animal and gesturing as though he were conducting a séance, Levier said.
In a release, state police listed the victim of the incident as "society." <~~~
Wolfe will face the charges before a district judge in Jefferson County at an unscheduled date.
Wolfe, who does not have a listed phone number, could not be reached today for comment.

That gives new meaning to "Creepy".
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Perfectly acceptable to want to help a distressed animal. I do hope they check him for rabies though!
A day late and a ... I just went to post this but you beat me to it.
You sometimes just gotta wonder...

Heck, who needs to be in a drunken stupor to commit stupid acts? But I'm getting better...

I started to post this one too, saw it a day ago, but felt like it would gross people out and scare off the newbies.
It does however give a whole new meaning to drunken stupor.
