Last Tuesday evening I was driving home from work and came across three dead possums just in Mullum.
They were hit in a 50 kph school zone and an 80 zone, and left on the road to be splattered by further traffic. It was disturbing to see that the drivers couldn’t even stop to remove their bodies.
Please drive with care during this highly active season for possums and echidnas. And if you hit an animal give it the same respect you would give a human: check whether it is alive, has a baby in its pouch, and remove its body from the road.
