Possum Relocation, Again

Its been two years since the great possum scourge of 2012-2013, when I trapped and relocated four of them in just over a year or so. They're attracted to the food we leave out for the semi-feral cats who live in our backyard, but word must have gotten around because we do not see them as often as we used to - I've only caught one since 2013.

But last night I saw this guy stuffing his face, oblivious to me watching him:



They're cute from some angles.

Anyway, I set up the trap and this was the first possum that cooperated right away and climbed in the first night. This is him the next morning, sharing a Hannibal Lector moment with one of the yard cats:




And then I took him to the park and set him free:

 And he's now living happily every after with the other ones I've released there.
