I came across this picture at an eye-catching spot in the council newsletter of a Northern Suburb of Sydney some months back. Guess what it is about? An interview w/ a Mrs Davis who has helped save >200 orphan infant possums in the past 2 decades.
One fine day some 20 yrs ago, somehow, it occurred to Mrs Davis that perhaps there's a baby in the pouch of a dead possum by the curb side, apparently victim of a motor vehicle accident. Call that the 6th sense or what, indeed there was one little 'Pinky', so these little ones are later affectionately referred to. She gained help fr the local veterinary groups & RSPCA, but still many died; some are simply too underdeveloped to survive, I suppose.
Couldn't help myself fr the read, against the then-still-chilly breeze on my way to school that fine early spring morning... . Does it speak anything about the community, that this sort of apparently 'unimportant', according to the standards of most utilitarian societies perhaps, news ever get a place in the council newsletter? What is in our headlines of our local papers this morning? And yours?
