Roofers be careful, please.
Recently we were called out to a house in the Brisbane suburb of Kedron, where the owner was very concerned about a possum which may have been trapped in the roof.
What happened was the owner had some roof and eve repairs carried out and he had suspicions that he may have a possum in the roof. The repairs were carried out and the roofers left. Over the next 4 days the possum tried, to no avail, to get out. Luckily the owner called and we found the hungry thirsty possum just about to give up. It had been inside for about 4 days. (They usually can only go about 5 days without water).
Any way by the time we got there the poor little possum was very weak but ok. Take a look.
We took it to the local animal hospital and all is well.
Roofers if you are doing repairs and you suspect their may be a possum in the roof, give us a call and we can organize or at least tell you what to look out for.
