Look what my trap caught


Recommended Posts

OMG...I never expected the varmit who was depositing such nasty messes could be so darn CUTE. Now I have to take him/her (I'm not checking on that issue) to a gorgeous state owned nature preserve. I only hope "it" doesn't have family here that depend on it

Elliott and Madison got as close to it as their fence allowed and were so good....no barking or jumping. Just 2 sets of very curious eyes. They probably thought they had a new playmate...if only!

I'm glad you caught it rather than your dogs getting into a fight with that beast....they may be small, but they can be deadly!

I bet your dogs were very interested in their new found pal!

Him/her is kinda cute but I'd be scared as to what it could do if ticked off. I'm glad that you were able to catch it and bring it to safety.

Personally I don't think there's anything cute about a opossum. They are very nasty creatures. They have more teeth than any other marsupial and they are all sharp as razors.

I don't think you have too much to worry about it having babies to leave behind because the babies usually ride on mom's back.

Good luck turning him/her loose. Be Careful.

There's nothin' in this world better than puppy breath!!!

Uhm, er....cute? We must have a different variety of possum!!!! We use to get them in our garage with we'd leave the door open for our outside cats. Stupid things would lay in the cat bed with them! ICK!!!!!! When they open their mouths big and wide they look like gators!!!!! Scary!

We have a pretty good relocation program on our farm!!! LOL

They're so plentiful in eastern tennessee. You see more road-kill of possums than any other animal..........jan

The release went like a charm. He showed me his teeth for a second when I picked up the cage but then he was quite well-behaved.

We listened to some soft music on the way and of course I drove very carefully. Found a nice group of trees with very dense shrubs underneath. I opened the back doorto the trap, we said our good-byes and off he went.

Very lonesome on the way home :whistle:

Glad you caught your uninvited guest. Just don't go releasing him around here. We have too many of them here as it is. :D I've got a great critter catcher, my Aussie. He caught the last possum that dug into our yard. :sick:

Edited to say: Guess we're posting at the same time. Just read that you released the possum as I clicked the "post" button. You won't be lonesome for long, not when you're coming home to 3 cairns. ;)

And this morning I had a cat in the trap!! I only baited it for another opossium but you know the saying...curiousity got the cat in trouble!

This trap really works wonderfully and neither of my visitors have been hurt....maybe their egos but that's it.

Gee, If I got a couple more of these traps, I could end up being Noah and have 2 of everything. :lol: Well, everything that lives in New England.

I know the cat belongs to one of my neighbors...it's one cat who attacks the birds at my feeder, the one who digs and poops in my garden, the one Madison goes bonkers over when she sees it on our stone wall and the one who does what nature intended cats to do....be a pain in the butt!

I had a few words with it before I opened the door to send it home and he flew through the yard and jumped over the back gate.

Should I have fed him breakfast first? :whistle:
