Pesticides cause baby squirrels, opossums, raccoons to be born with no eyeballs - Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

We've been getting in orphaned squirrels, opossums with missing eyes for quite a few years. The tree squirrels end up with no eyeballs due to pesticide spraying of their nest while the mother is pregnant. The opossums end up with no eyeballs due to mother ingesting snails poisoned with Snarol.

Recently we've been getting in orphaned raccoons missing eyeballs. If they are missing both eyes, they won't survive and must be euthanized. Same with tree squirrels as per the California Department of Fish & Wildlife. We used to keep them in our sanctuary if they were happy. Generally orphans that are born disabled are fine with their disability as it's all they ever knew.

Because the babies are deformed the mothers dump them out of the nest, den to die. Mom can't waste her milk on a baby which will not be able to survive. Sad situation. This of course means more orphans for us to care for.

If the animals has one eye, he can be rehabbed and released. Missing both eyes we now must euthanize as per Fish & Wildlife. Please, help us rescue and release the babies that we can. Thanks.
