The following video shows that possums are not the snarling demonic bird-gobbling creature as portrayed by government agencies.
Jim Hilton, in 1080 Eyewitness wrote: “If wild populations of possums were infected with Tb, possum hunters would have problems with Tb too. They don’t. The fact is that only one possum in about 4000 has Tb. That is 99.96 % of possums are healthy. Possums are demonised for Bureaucratic gain, they are vegetarians. Only in rare circumstances do they eat eggs or meat. They make great pets as this TV 3 footage shows.”
