Enjoying Semi-Retirement by Keeping Up With the Kids Online.

Pogo, 2013-2016

The Wildlife Center is sad to announce the death of Pogo, an education Virginia Opossum, on October 24, 2016.

Pogo turned three years old in the spring of 2016, three years of age is generally considered “geriatric” by opossum standards. In May 2016, the staff noted that Pogo was have more trouble getting around his enclosure and did not like to be picked up and handled anymore. An examination confirmed arthritis, and the outreach staff decided to retire Pogo to keep him comfortable.
