Salt Lake City Wildlife Removal Tip of the Month: What are some humane ways to kill an opossum in a cage?

It is not that easy to catch opossum and many people try to catch it and then they leave them into the wild. With this, you can take the opossum away from your place and secondly the opossum’s life is also saved. But the problem is that it is not easy to catch the opossum and it will require a lot of efforts and time as well. Therefore, people generally find the option of killing the opossums.

If you have caught the opossum in the cage then you will find that you will have options to kill them. The most common option that is used by the people is the poison. In this, simply give the poison and wait till the opossum will eat the poison and die. Well, this can be bit time consuming because you never know how much time will be taken by the opossum to eat it. While for many this might be bit cruel action but still there are many who practice it because they know that this animal can quite dangerous for their family and friends.

If you don’t want to be so cruel then you can use the simple poison which will do its effect quickly as soon as the opossum will eat it. For example, arsenic, it kills the animal just in few minutes. You can put the poison in some kind of food so that opossum will not take much time to eat it.

If you don’t want to try any kind of poison then you can use traps which have killing mechanism. Once the opossum will be trapped in that cage then a spike will hit at its brain, killing it instantly with any kind of poison. You will not have to do anything in this case. Simply buy the trap and keep it at the place you think that opossum will come. But yes, after the work is done, you will have to clean up that area properly for any kind of germs because it will be harmful for children or other family members.

Another option is through the gun shot. Because the opossum will be in the cage so it will be easy to target it. The work will be done in just one second but it can make the place really messy with opossum’s blood. Sometimes the blood stains don’t go easily. Not only this, it is important to disinfect the area. Therefore, if you are thinking to use this method then it is better to take the cage in an open area away from your house and then shoot the opossum. This way your house will not get dirty and there will not be any work of cleaning the mess.

There are some more options to kill opossum like using a spike. In this case, the animal is moved to a place in a cage where its neck is not able to move and then lever is pressed which will cut its neck and kills the animal right away.
