    industrial strength UG-LEE !! It may sleep with the fishes. But the fish are probably saying "there goes the neighborhood!"

    Quote:When my grandmother was a kid, they caught possoms, and corn fed them a while before they ate them. She said they did it to clean thier meat, because they eat nasty stuff. Then they cooked them like chicken [​IMG] . I think I will stick with chicken.

    If there is one possum there is bound to be more of them and I'd shoot and dispose of them as that'll be one less possum.
