The federal government is warning that the domesticated possum, commonly known as baby possums, could become a “cannibale.”
The government’s own scientists have identified the animal as a potential threat to human health, but it’s unclear whether they’re aware of its potential as a weapon.
“We’re working with the U,S.
Fish and Wildlife Service to identify what we think is the risk of domesticated baby possum to humans, and that could potentially include a potential human weapon,” said the government’s director of endangered species and wildlife, Peter McVey.
McVey also warned that the “problem with domesticated babies is that they’re a nuisance to other wildlife, and they’re not a threat to humans.”
Baby possums are commonly known by their pet names, Gerber, Baby Pinchers, Baby Possum and Baby Raccoon.
“In the past, we’ve seen a lot of domestication of the baby possuma,” McVee said.
“[But] now they’re on the rise in a lot more parts of the country.”
The government is working with wildlife experts and researchers to assess whether baby possems pose a threat.
In addition to being a nuisance, baby possumes can pose a serious threat to wildlife, which could include poisoning, poisoning and maiming.
“It’s a problem we need to address, because we have a very high prevalence of domestic pets in the U,” Mcvey said.
“I’m not sure where the [solution] is.
The way to deal with it is to take them out of the wild.”
In California, for example, there are more than 400 baby possuums in the wild.
California’s Fish and Game Department, which manages the state’s wild animals, has been working with officials from the U-S.
Department of Agriculture (USDA) to try to find a way to limit the number of domesticating possums in that state.
But the agency has struggled to do so, said Jennifer Lefkowitz, an assistant director with the department.
The Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR) is trying to figure out what measures can be put in place to protect the state and its wildlife from the problem.
DWR is currently working with local wildlife agencies and wildlife rehabilitators to address the issue.
A similar issue is also facing the U.-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS), which is currently under negotiation.
McVee and Lefky stressed that the U and Korea are working together to address these issues, but stressed that their goal is to prevent a “catastrophic” situation.
