I feel it is worth mentioning that of all the opossums I have pulled from trash cans and dumpsters, they have all gotten themselves in there of their own volition, dumpster diving for food, and then couldnít get back out again. They were all discovered when a resident was taking out their trash, and saw something looking back at them from the can. Many of these people donít even know what an opossum is, and they call up in a panic going ďI have the mother of all rats in my trash can!Ē

Iím sure it is possible that people have trashed them thinking they were dead, but I have no first hand knowledge of it happening.
