Opossum Rescued From Snap Trap
Two weeks ago, this adorable young opossum was brought to Project Wildlife after he was found caught in a snap trap. Fortunately, his story has a happy ending! This year alone, we've cared for nearly 200 animals who have been caught in glue and snap traps, including opossums, bunnies and hawks. If you have unwanted rodent guests, please consider using a humane deterrent. Peppermint, castor and citronella oils are all effective at driving away rats. Crushed pepper and onions can also do the trick! It's also important to note that rodents only come to your house if they're finding a valuable resource (food, water or shelter). If you can identify and remove what's attracting them, you'll also remove your unwanted guests!
