Awesome 'Possumz

Veteran trainer Stuart, new recruit Sweet Pea and I had a ball teaching the wildlife class to the new(er) Animal Control Officers at the Academy in Fredericksburg yesterday. ACOs from all over the state were in the class and what a great way to expose them first hand to the best wild animals in the state (am I biased?)! I believe it is so important for rehabbers, ACOs and other wildlife agencies to work together for a common goal: to protect our native wildlife and reduce wildlife/human conflicts. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to work with these men and women!
