US police say they charged a Pennsylvania man with public drunkenness after he was seen trying to resuscitate a long-dead possum along a highway.
State police Trooper Jamie Levier says several witnesses saw 55-year-old Donald Wolfe near the animal on Thursday along a highway about 105km northeast of Pittsburgh.
The trooper says one person saw Wolfe kneeling before the animal and gesturing as though he were conducting a seance.
He says another saw Wolfe attempting to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Levier says the animal had been dead for a while.
