Relocatio of opossums is appropriate for rescues. Release the opossum into cover away from roads and where humans live.
If translocation of opossums is legal, transport them at least 5 miles away from the site of capture.
Carbon dioxide gas is the most appropriate technique to euthanize opossums. Cervical dislocation also is common.
Check your local and state regulations regarding disposal of carcasses.
