I heard a story the other day about how opposums will bite, scratch ect...an animal without killing it but in doing so they infect it so the animal eventually dies. The guy who old me the story said he had a rabbit in a cage that was attacked by an opposum and after killing the opposum and having his kid's pet rabbit stitched up the vet told him that opposums can kill animals by infecting them with disease from their dirty teeth, nails ect...and the animal dies later and the opposum comes back later and eats it. The vet said that they can even kill deer using this method. I've never heard of this before. Anyone have any stories to confirm or rebuff this statement?
