Dead mom opossum with live babies, Animal Advocates, Mary Cummins

This happens quite frequently. Mom gets hit by a car and dies but her babies survive. It’s a sad situation but at least babies are saved. In this case I think mom may have died of old age and the heat wave. She barely had any milk left for her babies. Notice her pouch is totally relaxed. If she were alive, she could close her pouch up tight so you couldn’t even get a pinky in there. That’s how she holds her babies in when she runs. Her babies are doing great. I had to take them to the HSUS NDART hoarder rescuer with me because I had to tube feed them. 

Mary Cummins of Animal Advocates is a wildlife rehabilitator licensed by the California Department of Fish and Game and the USDA. Mary Cummins is also a licensed real estate appraiser in Los Angeles, California.
