After two months of rehabilitative care at the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley (WCSV), a female opossum was set free in a wooded area of west Santa Cruz, about a mile from where she was found injured.
Back in October, rescuers responded to a call about an opossum with its lower jaw stuck in the wire mesh of a cage trap. On arrival, they found the opossum had gotten its mouth free from the wire, but had sustained a severe injury, down to the bone. Read the full story HERE.
Thanks to the expert care received through WCSV, this Virginia opossum has been given a second chance to live wild and free.
