Long story short, back in November I found a possum in the coop eating the eggs, and another in the duck run, both of which we shot. (And reinforced everything so (hopefully) nothing more can get in.) Since then, we've had at least four more around the chicken and duck coops. (All have been shot.) We hadn't seen one in several weeks, so I thought we had got everything in control. Lo and behold, we drive in the driveway last night after dark and THREE possums were under the bird feeders. By the time I got the gun, they had all scattered. We set the live trap, but we didn't catch anything. (I figured we wouldn't.) Do you think we need to catch/shoot these possums? I would feel better if they were gone, even though I know there is always going to be something living in our grove. Nine possums seems kind of like a infestation to me. (But then again, I have always hated possums.) I guess I'm not sure at what point do I live and let live and when do I draw the line to protect my flock? I have seen tracks around the coops, which makes me nervous. If you think I should eliminate them, any tips? I'm planning on trapping and shooting, or shooting on sight if need be.
