Phew! Another Close One

This is why I had my trap set Saturday night. Last night it was about seven o'clock when I went out to close the chickens. I had closed the the door to the hen house and had turned around to head back to the house. This is what my light caught. Hey opossum, I know you are not dead.
This same thing happen last week, so I set the trap, but he didn't come back. I didn't bother with setting it tonight either. The poor dumb thing was still out there when I let the dogs out about nine last night. Oscar, who was spending the night, found him and gave him the very devil for about forty-five minutes. Besides it is raining tonight and I don't want to fool with it.

I almost locked a skunk up in the coop once.
The skunk was a baby and cute.

They don't give up easy, do they! I have to make sure BB sees these pics; we always call her possum when she won't get up in the morning!
