Target: Rod Knecht, Police Chief of Seaforth

Goal: Find and harshly punish whoever is responsible for illegally trapping a possum and killing it.

A possum reportedly had to be put to sleep after being caught in a metal rabbit trap that someone illegally set up. The injured possum was found in a garden, still dragging the trap behind it. The RSPCA Chief Director of New South Wales stated that the trap could’ve easily injured a child or a family pet.

Only a heartless and violent person would do something so cruel as setting a trap to capture an innocent wild animal. Something must be done to find and stop this person, who is a danger to to small creatures. Please add your signature to this petition to tell authorities to find whoever did this and bring them to justice before another animal, or even a child, is harmed.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Knecht,

An innocent possum was reportedly caught in a metal rabbit trap. The animal was still alive, dragging the trap behind it, but the injuries were so severe it had to be euthanized.

This disgusting act of cruelty and callousness is illegal and it must be treated like the heinous crime it is. We urge you to do everything possible to ensure that whoever did this is found and punished to the most severe extent.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Please find this cruel person and press charges against him/her for deliberately endangering the life of living beings with illegal traps. No mercy for such a soulless perpetrator.

  2. Are you fucking kidding me holy shit this is actually retarded.

  3. OPOSSUMS ARE NECESSARY TO THE ECOSYSTEM!
    I PRAY EVERYDAY THAT GOD SENDS A PLAGUE SO HORRIBLE THAT IT WIPES OUT EVERYONE THAT EATS, TORTURERS, RAPES, STARVES TO DEATH, MAIMS, SKINS ALIVE, CATS, DOGS, PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH DOG FIGHTING! PEOPLE WHO TORTURE ANIMALS AND SELL FOR GREED! THOSE THAT HAVE NO COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, AND THOSE THAT KILL FOR EVIL REASONS! IN JESUS NAME I PRAY!

    I’ve had pet possums. They kill vermin in our yard: small rodents, insects, worms, slugs and snails. They are resistant to rabies.

    WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO KILL THESE?

    • While we don’t have pet possums per se, we do have a few neighborhood possums that come around to sit with our kitties – in peace. They love zwiebacks with peanut butter 🙂 They DO eat pests, and are gentle until threatened. They’re safe in our yard <3

  5. justice for this great opossum now. who did this needs to be beat to death now for messing with nature.

  6. Signed and shared. I’m running out of words when I read things like this. I do not understand some people and I do not want to.

    I wish every night that someone (?) could take these heartless monsters to a different dimension – one where they’ll be the hunted. We do NOT need them in this world at all.

  7. Justice for this worthy animal!
