So this happened...this little guy came by for a bite today and Ari's curiosity for the better of him. Despite the way it looks, Ari very gently touched the top of the opossum's head, as if to make sure it was a real, if strange looking, cat. The opossum, on the other hand, didn't care much for any of us.

Mais uma mamãe resgatada! Hoje por volta das 13:00 horas,o calor aqui no Rio tava daquele jeito. Essa mamãe e seus filhotes já estavam molhados de suor dentro da lata de lixo , que sendo se metal estava mais quente ainda ! Com todo cuidado foi retirada com seus bebês, levada para um local de segurança e na sombra ! Pode se recuperar, deu tempo de comer uma banana pra se fortalecer, borrifei uma agua em sua boca e depois de 10 minutos ela partiu com esses pequeninos nas costas !
Wild animals are NOT a “nuisance.” Tragically, it has become a normality to view animals such as skunks, opossums and raccoons as a nuisance when they are cohabitants near our homes. The fact of the matter is that we are the interlopers. We moved into their homes when we built up our neighborhoods. The land we live on was theirs far before it was ours, and once we learn this we will do better to live harmoniously with the wildlife around us. Please, if you are considering live trapping and relocating an animal for your convenience, reconsider. Contact WRR’s 24-hour hotline where one of our trained staff will coach you on ways to harmoniously coexist with wild animals living in your urban area.

A beautiful warmer than usual fall and fast growing babies means that this evening, with lots of time left for nest building, 5 of 7 babies need to be released, while the other 2 will stay throughout the winter. 5/7 are over 2 pounds and are 11-12 inches in length so it's time. Such gentle creatures. Tonight is the hard part for me. When I rescue a dog, I get to pick their happily ever after. With my wildlife babies, I just say goodbye. #sevendwarves#wildliferescue#opossum
Just trying to do my laundry in my detached garage without being attacked by a sharp-toothed #marsupial#rodent . Thank goodness I’ve got a hoe on the side— or else I might have #rabies right now—it tried to attack me. Raines 1....whatever the hell this evil creature is....0. #opossum ?? #weasel ?? It #reeked too. It lived and relocated btw—I didn’t kill it. I was just pinning it down in the pic to put it in a box and it was hissing at me. It was #playingOpossum
