    We caught the opossum that got into my chicken coop the other night!!! He had a nasty gash on his leg where my rooster, Colonel, spurred him... Colonel gets extra treats today!!

    Great job catching that guy! Hope he remembers yours is the scary coop, so he doesn't ever come back!

    Yuck, I hate those things. You're gonna kill it, right? If not, it'll be right back.

    Please don't just "let it go in the country!" I live in a national park, and the amount of animals we get dropped is staggering!
    I wish everyone would remember if it is a problem fro you it will be for someone else to, except more so, because now it will be away from its home so more hungry, more deprate, and more willing to break into MY chickencoop! [​IMG]
