Possums in Upper Unionville area


We were pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning after a night of battering thunderstorm and heavy rains.

We found this couple sitting in our backyard cuddling, also saw a another on our side neighbour's backyard.

Here are their pictures....

Do we have call any wildlife people to relocate them ?


Thanks for your great picture, and to answer your question, no, you don't need to notify anyone about the Possums.

They are peaceful, non-aggressive creatures who show their teeth when cornered, but hardly ever bite.

Their first line of defence is to "play dead" when they are threatened.

I will also post this on our facebook page so that our facebook followers can also enjoy your picture.
