    in all serious though, i do feel bad for them having killed it, but its probably for the best.
    it was chasing the husband, so he grabbed a rake and pinned it and then they chopped his head off! this thing was MEAN.

    Yeah, don't feel bad. That is just one of the things that a good flock owner must do. Your son and Hubby did good! [​IMG]

    Maybe I am a scarety cat but I would not want a oppossum chasing me and trying to pin it down with a rake. Nasty bites, rabies etc. I have a shotgun.
