This is a rescue I did. While heading out, I spotted a body on the other side of the road in the middle of the lane. Did a u turn and found a brush tail possum female hit by a vehicle. She was still alive. Head back to ABC and dropped her off. Then completed the Microbat rescue. This little bat had tiny white like eggs around its neck. was able to clean and remove the very pus (yuk) like eggs and get him back to ABC. Trish cleaned him up, gave meds and a place for rest.
When I got back, the possum had died :( there was nothing that could've kept her alive. The injuries were very bad. At least she got some first aid/care and place to die. Rather than, as you most likely know what would've happened being out on that road, continuously run over.
The following day the Microbat died. :(
He was found on the ground by the caller on their back veranda. He had been been under the veranda roof for about 3 days.
