Part 3

‚Äč Abby wanted as many of the park's animals check for any kind of disease for that breed of animal possible. She hoped by spring the park's animals would be healthy and the park's petty area and bird sanctary would be up and running again The rangers sat different kinds of live traps and the squirrels gathering up their nuts for the winter thought the nuts in the live traps was easy picking .the doctor noticed that some of the park's squirrel populating had the balding disease from the Douglasi mites Another group had the bubonic plague from the fleas in the woods.

The rangers sprayed the park from above using a crop dusted to kill the fleas, ticks, and mites.After the park was sprayed the rangers trapped as many possums as they could. The vet examined them and said they were healthy. He had a theory like many other wild animal vets. The possum's low body temperature does not allow for the virus that carries rabbies and possibly distemper also to survive well.
