Gita and Her 8 Babies

Meet Gita.
Gita is approx one year old Virginia Opossum ( Blackjack ) She was abused by a group of Teenagers who kicked Her in the face and stepped on Her toes. She was rescued by a Neighbor and then taken to the Nature Center who sent Her on to the Vet for a checkup. Gita will be fine, She just has a few cuts and abrasions. She is very underweight and is nursing eight little babies. We will keep Gita for about a month to increase Her weight and give Her a good head start back into the Wild & Motherhood. Keep visiting this site for weekly Gita updates, along with photos of Her babies
