Opossum, Oh My!
Last night, I caught a baby opossum in my havahart trap. Despite it's strange tail and spiny teeth, it was actually pretty cute. I didn't quite know what to do with it. For some reason, it didn't feel right to drive it to the faraway woods where most of my garden pests end up. I've yet to see one in the garden and until I do, I'm willing to play nice. Also, part of me likes the fact that opossums also eat rodents and bugs. In the end, I decided to release it into the woods behind our property.
Has anyone ever had problems with opossums doing damage in the garden?
