Oh…What To Do…

Yesterday we found an Opossum in our back yard. He was there for so long I decided to OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAcheck him out. I know they play dead when they’re frightened but this one was there too long to be playing!

It’s dead. Rob came over this afternoon to take care of it for us.

Oh no.  He is a she…with babies. She’s definitely dead.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere are at least four babies! Armon saw one by the front porch.

Jerry showed one to me by the trellis in the back yard.




OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere were two more still with the mother.

Oh…what to do… I called the Nature Center but it’s closed for the day.

They won’t live without their mother and will probably be found by some predator. I don’t know what good Opossums are but I don’t like to see any animal suffer.

They are kind of cute!!! They were created by God.

    Opossums are one animal I don’t feel much sympathy for.
