Default Baby possums

Found the mother dead in road with 6 babies. Anyone want or know how to care for them?

There's a wildlife rescue place in town that may be able to help you out.

The Baby Possums have been delivered to the wild life sanctuary. They have been checked out. They are in awesome health. All is good for these six babies. And no no photographs will be revealed to protect their identity.

Cool Tom! I took 3 hairless, pink, eyes closed baby squirrels there last week. I plan to call to see if they made it. One of the bad nighttime storms blew their nest out of the tree.

Please consider donating your frost bit dated fish from your freezer to this sanctuary, instead of throwing it in the dumpster.

I took them several hundreds pounds when I was moving and had to get rid of my chest freezer. They were very appreciative.
