Question to the Rehab Community

From: "Haverty, Jennifer L - DNR"
Subject: 'possum, was GHOW available for placement

on a related topic -

I have a young opossum with a traumatic amputation of a front foot. I
suspect a trap.

Do you, or anyone you know, have experience with a successful
re-introduction to the wild, under those circumstances? Just how critical
for survival would that front foot be? She can move around, and climb to
at least some degree, although the stump is not fully healed yet.

GHOW was a Great Horned Owl that needed placement just fyi.
