It's illegal to keep possums as pets in Northland but people do.
WHEN: The 8th of the 8th 2018
WHY: To stop the possums eating native wildlife for food, and eat birds eggs and insects.
WHAT: The northland reginal council says that possums are the biggest pest in northland so it has become illegal to have one as a pet or in captivity, ony because they go explore for food of native wildlife, birds, eggs and insects. The law has not worked becase people still do exactally what there not ment to do. On the artical there is a woman which had a mother possum as a pet she fed it grains twice a day but it still may have got out when she was at work.
IN MY OPINION: I think people get to attracted to there possum so they would not give up there pet.
WONDERING: I wonder how much it is talked about because if it was not really talked about people could just try ignor the law?
