Re: Possum threat. Kill it or leave it

One yorkie was barking like crazy at something in the shadows. So I went to go see what it was and it started hissing at me. But I could tell it wasn't a cat. So it leads me to belive we have a possum running around killing small critters. I've also found dead squirrels around. So I'm thinking about trapping and or killing this possum if I can bait it out of the shadows. But the tricky thing is I only have a pellet gun. What do you guys think I should do?
I recommend doing some research. I have lived in opossum country my whole life and this is the first I have heard of opossums killing small animals. I can almost guarantee that opossum didn't kill the squirrels as opossums are nocturnal and squirrels are diurna
I used to be a nice guy but that don't get you anywhere. So now I'm just a piece of ****, idiot,
who's too stupid to care.
