Ok, so tonight i went out back to put my birds up and as i was closing the door, my dog started going crazy by the fence. She has been sniffin around alot lately neer where our garden meets our fence and i thought she was just smelling an old scent but as i shined that light up, i saw the wicked teeth of a huge possum. i ran over to the fence and amazingly she did not run. i happened to have a shovel right by the fence so i dropped the light and as soon as i grabbed the shovel the possum started running down the top of the fence. i ran with it and whacked as hard as i could but i'm not sure if i hit the possum. i knocked it off the fence, but i jumped up and looked over and did not see it. i know they are very hard to kill, but i thought a blow to the head might stun it enough for me to make another good hit with the shovel. So, i want to somehow finish it off, but i dont know the best way to get one in the city. I know it seems a little wrong to kill it but i hate them and it was just a little to close to my hens. i have got one live trap but it is too small so i was thinking about possibly buying some steel traps from Gander Mountain and setting those baited up with peanut butter or cat food, but i'm just worried that it will not find those traps. if you have any methods that you have been succesful with, please let me know. remember though, i am in the city, i really cant shoot it, except with maybe a pellet gun if its on the ground.
