    Default Opossums ... 3! Not a Squirrel!

    Found 3 Opossums. Around the length of a dollar bill, eyes opened and will open mouth if kinda of scared. There is no wildlife people around me that is open and I don't really wanna deal with this as I have too much going on now with life. I'm located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    Should I relocate them to a park or something? I don't know if they will survive without the mom, if the mom is even coming back. It was only 3 total, under a wood pile in leaves. I can't really leave them where they were as the wood pile was moved and the yard they are in is being redone, huge tree cut down, etc.

    I know this is a Squirrel place but I don't know if anyone knows anything about these and know of a great person who can take care of them correctly.

    Yes. The person he listed is 5 hours away so that's not an option.

    We have a member in Cincinnati that has a wildlife rescue. Her user name is MommaLuvy. She is a licensed rehabber.
    This is her FB page. https://m.facebook.com/StMelangellSmallMammal/

    This is her website. stmelangellsmallmammalsanctuary.org

    Also, Ohio Wildlife Center is apparently a good place. Another member who is a a vet used to volunteer there and recommended it in the past.

    I did find her and tried talking to her but she was very sketchy with information and getting back to me and she left me confused on what to do really. They ended up going to Wildlife Emergency Service Team (W.E.S.T.). I can PM the name if anyone needs her. She already had 2 opossums, tons of raccoons and squirrels. They are good now.
