I have been visited by possums and raccoons lately. The raccoon was captured and taken to be released into a more friendly habitat than my back yard. This possum's pal was caught in the trap overnight and awaits his next destination. Tomorrow we set the trap again in hopes of catching this fellow. He was making his way along the top of my back fence this morning.
I'm not sure if this is the same possum, but the bottom picture shows that a possum has been around since he was a youngster. Something (we're not sure what) had made a nice nest for itself underneath my house, so that was taken care of. The possums are not nearly as assertive as the raccoons, but I would rather them have a home in the great outdoors.
