Driving home tonite I saw a possum in the middle of the road. I ended up making a uturn and parking in a nearby lot. Amazingly all the cars avoided the possum so I found a plastic bag in the trunk and picked em up and laid em down under a tree. What really surprised me was how lifelike e felt, quite healthy too, not very large and sure had a nice set of teeth. The eyes were open and seemed life like but not moving. Is paw seemed to find its' way into is mouth. I thought maybe, just maybe is playing possum and grabbed a box and some posters out of a dumpster to put im in. I picked im up in the poster paper and laid im gently in the box which was just the right size. There were other boxes in the dumpster but this one was a perfect fit. I carried im over to the trunk and put im in. Closing the trunk I worried e wouldn't ave enough air but took the chance rather than put im in the car and e wakes up an freaks out or something and I din't want to take a chance getting bit if e got scared waking up in a strange place. On the way ome I'm thinking, what to do, what to do, and when i got home put im in the big shed but it smelled too strong of paint an i didn't want him to pass out from it so i put im in the little shed so e wouldn't be out where a racoon or somethin could eat im. Then I did a search on google with words injured possum and found a few sites said get a wildlife rehabber or vet and don't try to cure im urself. So I found an old number on the rollodex that said wildlife rehabilitator and called it hopin for the best. Immediately a woman answered and i told her i found a little possum on the road with a gash in the side of is head but I thought e might be still alive. She said to bring im so I got directions and said i'd be there in 10 minutes as it was closeby. I found the place easily and pulled up in the driveway an got the box with the possum out of the trunk and brought it to her gate where she came and took it from me. I told her e seems to ave put is paw further into is mouth an i think e's playin possum. Then i noticed a deer an said that's a beautiful deer and that i never saw a deer before an she pointed to the other deer an said that one got hit by a car, something about missin a top or bottom lip an think i kinda saw it but it was dark out. i said aw that's too bad, thanked her and as she carried im away said i hope e's still alive an she said she'd give im a gander.
