OPOSSUM RESCUE

4 Aug

A few weeks ago a mother Opossum was separated from two of her babies at Camp Illahee in Brevard, NC.  Vincent, the maintenance director of the camp,  found the babies in two different trees so he rescued them and gave them to Chub took them to the nature center and placed them in warm cage. Vincent then set a live trap for the mother Opossum and caught her overnight. The next morning when I arrived at the nature center I found the mother and babies waiting to be reunited. Watch the video for what happened next!
