Berks County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Do opossums have rabies?
As with most wild animals that may wander in and out of your home or yard occasionally, there is a worry of disease. One of the biggest worries that people have with the opossum, is that it can carry the rather dangerous disease - rabies.
The fact of the matter is, any mammal can contract and carry this deadly disease, but in the case of the opossum, it is usually rather rare. As a general rule, you are unlikely to find an opossum that does have rabies, simply because the body temperature within the animal is too low for the virus that is behind the disease to survive. Usually, the core temperature of this animal is around 94 to 97 Fahrenheit, and this, according to scientists, may be too low a temperature for the virus to survive.
Despite the fact that normally, an opossum will NOT have rabies, you will still need to proceed with this animal with caution. It can still hiss, bite and scratch, and if it feels threatened, although it will usually "play dead", there is still the chance that it will lash out at you, your children, or your family pet. Of course, the pets can be vaccinated against disease such as rabies, but there are still other things that you will need to concern yourself with, and this is exactly the reason why you should always be careful when dealing with any wild animal. Although it is VERY RARE that an opossum would have rabies, there is still a chance that it could have it, as well as many other rather dangerous conditions that you or your family pets simply wouldn't want!
