Kimmie is a one-year-old opossum living at the Woodland Park Zoo.  Originally from Houston, a dog had grabbed her and bit her causing a severe spinal injury. The Woodland Park Zoo got her from the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Coalition and sent her to Seattle where she is undergoing physical therapy. Kimmie is food motivated ìSheíll do anything for cheese," says Karen Ofsthus from the zoo's interpretive engagements program. "Originally she couldnít climb up or down but sheís getting stronger." Sheís around 6 pounds.
