The caught in trap elder female that I've had for over a month is finally outside in one of the prerelease enclosures. She was taken off of her antibiotics for a week while still staying inside to make sure that no infection began to develop and to see if she could keep her healed injuries clean of debris. She did great so she got to move outdoors. Although she began to get very sweet with me while inside because I would give her treats when she got her antibiotics (it made it much easier and less stressful on her, you always want to keep the level of stress as low as possible) she became a wild opossum again once she got to go outside. You can see her progress of her injuries and how great they've healed in the before and after pictures below. I am so happy that she gets to be released soon and live out her life as a free opossum. I hope she thinks twice before walking in to a trap again, even if she can smell the food awaiting inside.
