Until 6 months ago I hated opossums to the max. I always found the aftermath of a visit.
It seems they do not decapitate chickens for evil !! Much like Alligators they kill 6-10 days
before consumption to allow meat to rot. That way it is easier to eat their kill. Previously
the assumption was that they are evil ! Why would any animal reach in and chew off the
chicken's neck and leave it ??? Turns out they do not kill for no reason, they will return
a week later to devour rotten meat(yuck) just as Aligators do. No lies I still hate them &
dispatch them as possible. The only difference is now I understand why they do that !
