Research The Australian brushtail released (to initiate a fur trade) in batches from 1837-1921 - becoming a national pest in 1946. The late 70's early 80's was the year possums skins earned the most coin up $27 per pelt - that was a lot of extra money back then. Fur is more preferable today. Posssums are destroying our native forests, eating 21 tonnes of leaves, flowers, buds per night + eating eggs and chicks of our native birds.
