Awww, he is cute. Cute behind bars.
Someone crushed a skunk in front of our house last night it smells horrid here.

I think he's adorable.

Why are you catching all of these creatures?

Isn't he though? I love possums. Or is it opossums?

We're relocating them because they're driving the neighborhood pets NUTS. We haven't slept for a couple of weeks because all the dogs(and there are many!) on the block start barking at 3:00 am and don't stop until the sun comes up. These poor critters can't find food - save for what's in our compost and garbabge pails - and I think will be happier in the woods behind the airport.

Plus the children are getting some very fun and up close lessons on wild animals...

Ewww, so not cute. One year a possum gave birth under our pool deck, the babies were not cute either. I hope he and the raccoon are happy together!

At least yours was alive, I always have to scoop the dead ones out of the pool! Yuck.

Opossum - pretty harmless unless you have a horse - 'possum poo carries a protozoa VERY harmful to horses (yea, I know TMI) - I don't imagine there are many horses at the airport so horray for relocation!
