So, what happened to the Browns rally possum?

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Rally Possum lives.

The fate of the Browns’ lucky marsupial was in question after video showed a fan capturing it by its tail in the stands at FirstEnergy Stadium and putting it in a box.

But, we can now confirm, the possum, or opossum if you want to get technical, was alive when it left the stadium.

“The possum was humanely released outside of the stadium,” a Browns spokesperson told cleveland.com.

If only it was self-aware, the possum would consider itself fortunate. According to state protocol for the capture of nuisance wild animals, trappers are permitted under law to euthanize opossum.

Instead, the creature was spared and the Legend of the Rally Possum grows -- there are even T-shirts! -- as the Browns and their fans celebrate the first win in 635 days.
