California Department of Fish & Wildlife does not want rehabbers rehabbing red fox, opossum or starlings

The California Department of Fish & Wildlife does not want rehabbers to rehab "non-native" species such as starling, red fox, eastern fox squirrel, opossum... They believe they are pest species that compete with native wildlife. Opossums have actually been in California many more years than just since the 1800's. There are opossum fossils dating back thousands of years.

The below slides are from a power point presentation most likely made by Nicole Carion. She states that ONLY opossums carry sarcocysities neurona. This is false. Domestic cats also carry it. Here are some studies which prove this. This is why it's illegal to flush used cat litter down the toilet. It even says this on the side of litter boxes.



She also states that most people feel opossums are pests. Opossums actually eat roaches, mice, rats, snails, slugs...They eat "pests" besides dead rotting animals or rotten fallen fruit. Notice she used a photo of an opossum showing its teeth. So much misinformation from Nicole Carion.

Nicole Carion is saying that rehabbers that rehab opossums, fox squirrels...are not "well respected, progressive organizations." That would mean the Opossum Society run by Leslie Bale is not "respected." Leslie Bale is the President of CCWR (California Council for Wildlife Rehabilitators). She is a well respected wildlife rehabilitator. Carion even contradicts herself by stating wildlife rehabilitation does not affect overall population sizes. Then rehabbing or not rehabbing opossums should not matter.
