Summerlee,

Opossums are immune to rabies. Your husband is an idiot and should be arrested for animal cruelty.

From the Opossum Society web page:

Any mammal can get rabies. However, the chance of rabies in an opossum is EXTREMELY RARE. This may have something to do with the opossumís low body temperature (94-97ļ F) making it difficult for the virus to survive in an opossumís body.
