Only one person let me know they received this morning’s post about getting two more possums. It was a long detailed post – I don’t think I can remember all of it to re-post it.
Last night I checked the barn at 10 pm to find one possum in the cat room and one right outside which Hazel and Telly found. I confined the one in the cat room behind a door, set the live trap at the open end and scooted the possum into the trap and slammed the door!
Telly and Hazel fought with the possum outside until Telly grabbed it and drug it out from under a small step. We managed to shove that possum in another trap – the only problem was that Hazel would not let go so she was in the trap, too! I pulled her out the bait door at the opposite end and the possum played “possum”.
Here is the scene this morning on our way to the wildlife refuge.
The red on the cage is not blood but red spray paint – I spray paint their tails so I can tell if they return. After that big possum hunt last night, here is Hazel this morning, all sweet and docile. You’d never know it was the same dog!
I’m going to quit right there – while I’m ahead. I hope this posts!
