Hey guys. I've been trying to live trap an opossum for at least two months. I have bated the trap with veggies, peanut butter, crackers and it always seems to figure out how to get the food without actually going inside the trap. Today I caught a squirrel instead of the opossum. Any advice?? I really want to just live trap it and set it free miles from here. I'm so sick of this thing! It's eating all of the chicken feed, making a bed and ripping up our garden shed. I have seen it, so I can confirm it's an opossum.
