When is a “humane trap” not humane?



Virginia Opossum (#1517) was caught by accident when a business owner, trying to get rid of raccoons on his property, set a cage trap he had bought at the hardware store.Traps can't determine who they'll catch, and this one caught this opossum.

The problem? She was a nursing mother who needed to return to her babies.

Why weren't her young in her pouch or on her back? Too bad the person was irresponsible in not checking his traps frequently. I, and our group,use traps for trap, neuter and release feral cats and have gotten opossums, but since we always monitor our traps, they are released immediately.

The First Baby Squirrels of 2003

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roBIlhVhgFI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roBIlhVhgFI</a>

Without fur, and with eyes still tightly sealed shut, these are very young squirrels, probably about a week old. All three seemed warm and well-fed, so we knew Mom had been looking after them.

In this situation, our first thought is to try to get them back into her care. At WildCare, we successfully raise hundreds of orphaned wild babies every year, but all of these babies would be better off in their mothers' care. And wild moms desperately want them back, too!

Upon intake at WildCare, each baby was weighed and one foot was marked with a color to help distinguish them from each other.

For the rest of the story (with more videos) go here:
