Judge blocks law that created loophole for opossum drop - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

PETA, possum drop, opossum, Mary Cummins, California

"Superior Court Judge Bryan Collins granted a preliminary injunction against a law the General Assembly passed in June that created a regulatory loophole for the Clay County business that holds the Possum Drop."

Law makers passed a law stating no laws apply to opossums, possums during the last week of the year, i.e. HB 1131 "Clay County opossum wildlife exclusion law."  The law would have made it legal to rape, kill, light on fire, draw and quarter, torture an opossum in North Carolina for the last week of the year. That new law is of course unconstitutional.

Previously the opossum drop was being done illegally. PETA shut them down a couple of years ago because they didn't have proper permits. The next year the possum drop person got the necessary permit. PETA then filed suit saying the department which gave them the permit did so erroneously. Then they state passed the opossums right to work act, i.e. bill 60. Again PETA stated it was unconstitutional.
