Oh I Am SO mad right now!!!! This stupid possum was sitting in my apple tree in my run just now!! DS was outside and on his phone and thought it was one of the cats in the tree, um, NO, it was this huge, ugly very slow to move possem!!!! I grab the baseball bat and am on my way out to the coop and DH tells me to hang on, wait for him. We get out there, kids in various stages of scared, freaked out, going for the kill modes, etc around us, and it is still sitting there in the tree! I'm whacking branches to get it to fall, and dh is STILL telling me to hang on and let him handle it, and his idea of handling it is to try to get it out of the tree so it can leave the run. I'm chasing this thing like mad before he gets out, and get a good whack in to try to hit it hard.... and I missed because dh didn't want the kids to see it get killed I'm so mad I could spit nails, NOTHING messes with my flock, DH included. The coop is like ft. Knox, the run isn't so secure but it will be starting tomorrow! It comes back, it is TOAST, DH or no DH and freaked out kiddos or not, it is a DEAD possum! Thanks for letting me rant, I'm still so mad right now I could spit nails!!
