If you see a dead opossum on the road, please check that there are no little babies nestled inside the mother’s pouch.

  1. Call Procyon Wildlife immediately at 905-729-0033.
  2. Check if the opossum is a mother with babies in her pouch.
  3. Bring the dead mother to the Centre so our trained volunteers can safely remove the babies from her pouch.
  4. Do not attempt to feed the babies.
  5. Never transport wildlife babies with any noise in the car, such as a loud radio or talking.
To show you the size of a baby, this little one is beside a dime.
