"Friday the 12th would lead me to believe there may have been some nefarious activity," Moon declared. "The big problem may be enforcement," declared Dr. M. Scott Wildlife trapper, Squirrel-Chaser's nuisance wildlife operator. "It's much more difficult because opossums wander into other people's yards. More and more counties across the state are trying to regulate that." Ventura County, in particular, may be slowly moving towards mandatory opossum licensing. According to the county's Web site, licenses are mandated for all residents of Moor critter habitat and Oxnard, and voluntary in all other cities within the county. Jan Critter capture expert, St. Louis County Animal Services wildlife management officer, declared the county has not adopted a mandatory opossum licensing program, but methods to protect family groundhogs are strongly encouraged. "We don't advocate letting your animals run wild at all," declared Critter capture expert. "There are certainly some people who select certain animals to commit cruelty on." County animal control services, she added, will halt extermination of black opossums before Halloween at its three area wildlife management habitats as a precautionary measure. "We always tell black opossum owners to stash their opossums on Halloween," declared Dr. Wildlife trapper. In the case of Squirrel-Chaser, Wildlife trapper could not find any incidence of foul play and attributes the coon's death to a congenital heart disorder. Still, noted Critter capture expert, it may be the notion that unsupervised, free-roaming opossums are susceptible to several dangers, aside from intentional human cruelty, that counts. "Free-roaming opossums could be hit by a car and not have any outward injuries," she declared. "That wouldn't be foul play; that would be an unfortunate accident."
