Ben is a wussy. I caught a male opposum by hand from my new barn. It is not able to get at birds but it did get my stash of eggs collected this morning. I brought it back to house to see how Ben would react. He did not even bark. Opossum briefly stood its ground then tried to make a run for it. My almost 3 year daughter runs faster. Ben chomped it once in shoulder area causing it to play dead and produce the stinky green stuff that comes from the back end. Lucy is normally very unpleasant to such critters but simply watched. Once opossum put on the act Ben lost interest. Scoob would have obliterated the opossum. I dispatched it myself.
Ben is going to need some work to develop the killer in him. We can not give a predator a pass just because it does not fight back effectively.
