Many people trap opossums thinking that are dangerous to have around or just irritated that the cat or dog food they leave out keeps getting eaten. I inform everyone I can about not leaving pet food out at night and that opossums are great to have around in your neighborhood. Studies have shown that neighborhoods with opossums are cleaner than neighborhoods that don't have any opossums. But there are always people that continue to trap them. These two opossums were brought in to the local SPCA. The female on top I received today and the male on bottom I received yesterday. Both are very healthy young adults, just have a small abrasions on the top of their muzzle from trying to escape their traps. I gave them both a bit of food and then they were both released tonight.
