RUTLAND, Vt. (WCAX) - Four opossums saved in Rutland are finding their new home in the wild.

Rutland’s Steve Costello back in September came across the four babies after their mother died. He connected with a wildlife rehabilitator who cared for them until they were ready to be released back into the wild.
