Dead Possum in the Middle of the Tree

I was in the backyard weeding and pulling up plants that had died during the recent freeze.  It was in the midst of pulling dead vines from the fence, when something caught my attention.  I got closer to the trunk of the oak tree and saw something furry.  I couldn't figure out what it was.  And then I saw the tail and screamed - it was a dead possum!

It was stuck in the tree, and I have no idea how it died.  Briefly, I considered using a plastic bag to throw it away, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.  It looks like it's been there a while.

When I asked my husband what we should do, he said, "Just leave it."  So every time I go out in the backyard, I see this sight.
