I know this isn't fishing relayed, but thought I'd share this story. I'll start out by saying I hate opossums. Heard of the aftermath of a possum breaking into a barn and eating all the heads off a litter of kittens, not to mention how destructive they can be. But yesterday I was driving to work and saw a dead opossum in the road and a bunch of little dead possums around it. I caught a glimpse of a little fur ball still moving so I turned around. Found that one opossum was still alive but wouldn't be for long as it's a fairly busy road. I picked it up with a bag and carried it to the woods adjacent to the road but he started back to the road towards the other dead opossums. So I put him in my Jeep and went to work until I could figure out what to do with him. Found out from some reading that a opossum can survive on it's own at a 1/2 a pound and that was about where he was at. Instead of giving him to a animal rescue or animal control, I decided to just let it go in the woods next to a pond I frequent on lunch breaks. He took off pretty quickly and I think he'll be fine. Like I said, I hate opossums, but this opossum was pretty cute (for now).
Hope everyone has a good day.
