Cre­at­ing strong bonds

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

THE wel­fare of our wildlife is very de­pen­dent on the ob­ser­va­tions of the pub­lic, and some­times our car­ing na­tures are not al­ways in the an­i­mals’ great­est in­ter­est.

Feed­ing of wildlife is best done only in ex­treme weather con­di­tions when food sources run short.

It has be­come a com­mon prac­tice to feed pos­sums in sub­ur­bia. Sadly, this means the pos­sums con­gre­gate around houses where they are of­ten fed incorrect food.

Some­one brought me an in­jured pos­sum last week and was sur­prised its main diet was leaves.
