    Heard some squawking, dog started barking, so I grabbed my .22 and went outside to see a possum walking around the run trying to figure out a way to get in. Aimed for the head and got him! I'm kinda proud of myself now, [​IMG] [​IMG]

    yeah, another thumbs up. I am as hard core an animal lover as anyone else, but I don't have mercy on critters trying to get at my birds.

    [​IMG] I love animals. But have no tolerance for anything after my any of my animals. Give the dog a big steak. And yourself one too.

    congrats on the kill. possums arent usually something you would suspect to kill a chicken, but they are quite viscious

    Good job. I'm still trying to get a couple of possums that have been on my front porch lately eating food out of the cat dishes. I've gotten one so far, and I know theres atleast one more but I think its 2 or 3 more.
