A side note to the ignorant [Nick Beder] Opossums; They’re nature’s little sanitation engineers, they are more resistant to rabies than any other mammal including man.
They help to maintain a clean and healthy environment.
They eat all types of insects including cockroaches crickets and all types of bugs.
They catch and eat rats roof rats and mice and they consume dead animals of all types.
They like overripe fruit berries and grapes. And they think snails and slugs are delicious. .
Opossums go about their quiet task late at night and you usually won’t know they were around … unless your dog (being territorial) starts barking or you happen to take a midnight stroll when one is munching insects or snails in your yard.
Getting rid of opossums in your area means:
Loss of a harmless animal which eats all manner of pests;
Leaving a vacant ecological niche that will be filled by adjacent opossums or by other mammals such as rats skunks raccoons.
Opossums don’t dig into the soil nor do they destroy property; the risk of exposure to disease is lowest with them and higher with all other mammals; and they don’t have a strong scent.

I copied this from a document i found about this serial killer “Initial Story treatment/idea about trapping, penning and wildlife contests using Nick Beder’s Facebook page. This man’s website was appalling. It demonstrated the lack of respect and sense of entitlement to kill and torture wild animals for sport that comes from not having laws that protect wildlife. License to Kill America’s Bloody Secret: Trapping, Snaring, Penning & Wildlife Killing Contests Video: opening shot fade up from black…See coyotes running wild, playing in the snow, pups playing, wolves, raccoons, bears, cougars, bobcats, any beautiful images we can find. Last shot is close up of beautiful coyote face Sound: Running and panting sounds only Sounds stop Video: Cut to black then quick cut to video of coyote being held by scruff of neck by Nick Bader. Cut to video of Bader stuffing the dirty fetal position coyote that gave up into the cage…use some of his remarks here. Cut to black and show title: License to Kill America’s Bloody Secret: Trapping, Snaring, and Penning & Wildlife Killing Contests Narrator Jon Way Voice: What does the face of fear look like? Video: Quick cuts of 5 images…. Show image of female coyote being held by scruff of neck next to smiling trapper (use caption from Facebook page saying it was the female mate of the male he caught the day before). Other images to be added Cut to black Voice: What about pain? Video: Quick cuts of 5 or more images…..Show black coyote with bleeding mouth and other images of animals in pain in traps. Other images to be added Cut to black Voice: What of torture, suffering, inhumanity Video: Quick cuts of more images of coyotes stacked on one another ready to be transported to penning facilities (show text explaining about the urine capture) there are various images here on his site, show him holding animals upside down Cut to black Voice: What does it take to make a living being “give up”? Video: show images of coyotes cowering in fear show the image of a trap (in his images) and then cut to the coyote so afraid it curled up in ball as he shoved in the cage. Use the title he made for this image called “giving up” Fade to black more slowly and then use voice over and show this message Voice Welcome to the lawless hell that is trapping, penning and wildlife killing derbies or contests Video: quick cuts to show piles of coyotes, the piles of opossums, show dead beavers and otters, close up of faces and fear Fade to black and then we hear but not see Louise Kane speaking Hi I’m Louise Kane, When I first saw the appalling video and images you just saw they were posted on a Facebook site where the creator proudly posed with ghoulish images of dead or about to die wild animals he had trapped. The killer even posted pictures of a traveling trailer system that functions like a temporary extermination camp so that when he travels to other states he has a facility to kill or keep the trapped animals. As I forced myself to look at the faces of the wild animals this man had captured or killed, over the years, in his Facebook albums, I was struck by the fact just one man created this carnage. Unfortunately a quick search will reveal many others who also do so legally. The accompanying text to many of the images revealed that this man had killed, captured and tortured hundreds if not thousands of coyotes, bobcats, beaver, otters, baby raccoons, bears, opossum and other wildlife, often posing with the trapped or injured animals making obscene and disrespectful remarks and enhancing their terror and fear by handling and dominating them or making them pose with him before killing them. Every year millions of wild animals, like those you have just seen, are betrayed by management agencies and a corrupt system. The laws and our wildlife agencies allow people who trap and kill or participate in wildlife killing contests to trap, pers to torture, maim, and slaughter America’s wild animals without restraint… and or regulation. legally. Trappers and people who kill for sport by entering killing contests or participating in penning like to try and to cloud the issue by claiming they are managing wildlife. They claim they are conservationists. They say they enjoy the challenge of the sport, and respect their prey. They say that people who try to protect wildlife are infringing on their second amendment rights. They say the animals they kill are ruthless and bloodthirsty, that they kill for fun. Video: show animals playing then cut to trapper with three or more animals trapped in a row and cut to piles of dead animals. They call them nuisance species or vermin. And defend these actions as management. And the wildlife agencies allow them to continue to kill and torment those that have no voice defending it as “management”. Trapping and snaring, wildlife killing contests and penning have made life a hell on earth for wildlife and are altering our ecosystems in ways we many not be able to reverse. Our wildlife deserves better and so do we. What do we send as a message to our children when this wanton and mad killing is legal? Isn’t it time to change the laws? I’m not a celebrity or star just an ordinary citizen like you and countless others who are outraged and appalled and tired of having our voices ignored. Please teach true respect of for wild animals. Help to end trapping, penning, and wildlife killing contests. (Just what is penning?) A note on penning from Brooks Fahy: The coyotes this man captured were the victims of penning, a despicable and utterly indefensible activity. After being trapped many of these coyotes, who mate for life and are intelligent and shy, or foxes were being shipped to penning facilities. After being unnaturally crammed into crowded crates for extended periods of time the sick, injured, traumatized animals who were separated from their families are released into pens only to be chased down and ripped apart as “sport” or to train dogs. This is penning Whether they were killed immediately or sold to hellish penning facilities. Under many state laws, wild animals have no protection from men like him. These men have do not have an ounce of compassion, no respect for the families and lives they tear torn apart, the individual suffering of the each animal or the cost to our ecosystems… You may ask how is this possible? Wildlife management is run by agencies that sell licenses to kill or are partially or wholly funded by special interests. Governors appoint many wildlife commissions or politicians with ties to powerful hunting, livestock or other lobbying groups like the NRA or Safari Club International. The commissions may be made up solely of hunters and trappers. So the laws are created to protect the livestock industry and hunters and trappers, but not the American public or wild animals. Even now, when many civilized nations have banned these activities, wild animals like coyotes, cougar, foxes, and even wolves who were just recently delisted lost full Endangered Species Act protectionsfrom the Endangered Species Act continue to be caught and killed in unspeakably inhumane and , archaic ways like trapping or snaring, that even many hunters despise. Ordinary citizens that object are often ignored. Please make your voice heard and help to end trapping, penning, and wildlife killing contests.
