Default Re: Legal to have a pet possum in Michigan?

Every state has different exotic pet laws. In some places, you can have a pet squirrel or kangaroo while other places you can't even have a pet rabbit. Some states are specific as to what animals they restrict while others allow pretty much anything to be kept as a pet.

In Michigan, Opossum is regarded as a game animal.

Permits to Hold Game in Captivity authorize the possession of animals reared in captivity only. They do not authorize the possession of animals taken from the wild in Michigan. Only licensed wildlife rehabilitators can possess injured or orphaned animals from the wild in Michigan.

A Permit to Hold Game in Captivity is required to possess, propagate, sell, transport, or make any other commercial or personal use of live animals defined as game in Michigan. In addition, a Permit to Hold Game in Captivity is required for the possession of live animals which closely resemble game species and can reasonably be confused with game species as determined by the Department. A Permit to Hold Game in Captivity is required for the possession of the following game animals: badger, bobcat, fox (Urocyon cinereoargenteus and Vulpes vulpes), raccoon, coyote, beaver, otter, muskrat, mink, squirrel, skunk (Mephitis mephitis), woodchuck, opossum, pheasant (Phasianus colchicus), bobwhite quail, Hungarian partridge, ducks, geese, and wild turkeys. Michigan game animals not listed above may not be possessed under a Permit to Hold Game in Captivity.
