Permit mainly specifies how possums should be dealt with in a particular manner. If an animal enters the residential area, then where is the animal supposed to be released? After every 3-4 months, a report is sent to the department which summarises the activities done while holding the permit.

For catching any animal, a wildlife permit from Damage Mitigation Permit is a must. In case you have trapped or controlled any animal then it is supposed to be released within 20-25 meters of the area from the property, where it was controlled.

For a few animals, an enormous range is given to release the animal. The range is decided by the department of forest and agriculture, Damage Migration authority, and much more. Whereas on the other side it’s quite tough to hold a few animals for a long time. Therefore, they are released in the nearest approachable forest.
