Corpus Christi Citizens who transport trapped opossums to Animal Care Services are not in violation of the regulation prohibiting the transport and release of nuisance fur bearing animals, according to Texas Parks and Wildlife Assistant Commander Kevin Davis.  According to Davis, “Since the City of Corpus Christi has obtained necessary authorization from the department to allow a mechanism for release of nuisance furbearers to the wild, it is the position of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Law Enforcement Division that individuals transporting nuisance opossums to the city for disposal as allowed under the city’s letter of authorization is permissible.” Animal Care Services will still be responsible for the reporting guidelines required under Texas Administrative Code Chapter 65.
