Possum removed from store in Buderim

We recently helped a local store owner by relocating a possum from his store. The possum was gaining entry from four possible places into the store. We trapped the possum in a possum cage and safely relocated it in a nearby garden after repairing and sealing (possum proofing) the entry points. Possum are creatures of habit and it would have continued going back into the store for food and was urinating and leaving its dropping around the store which is unhealthy for the staff and patrons.
Possums are a protected species and as they are territorial once they are captured they need to be released within 25 meters of their point of capture; it is for this reason we seal any suspected entry points prior to releasing the possum. All possum capture and releases are monitored by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.
