CLEVELAND — Browns fans surely remember the Browns Rally Possum, an opossum that found its way into Section 101 back in 2018 and was captured by its tail and placed in a box by a fan. In 2022, a new critter made an appearance in the game—a sly skunk that snuck into FirstEnergy Stadium.

During Sunday's Browns game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, fans in Section 140 spotted a skunk walking the stairs casually as fans recorded it making its way through the stadium.

A box was eventually brought to the section in an attempt to capture the skunk but it wandered under one of the metal steps where it remains.

There has been no word if Animal Control or another unit has been called to help safely capture the skunk and remove it from the stadium.
