    Instead of the Easter Bunny, you've got the Easter Possum! Did he/she leave amiably?

    Yikes! Thankfully the only ones I've seen around me so far are roadkill. That's one mean critter!

    It squeezed in though a small hole in the door, or came in when the flock was out. And I didn't notice when I locked them in for the night.

    Gosh. It's ugly. Our possums don't look like that.

    Here's a photo. They are a pest here and can be shot.

    How could you shoot something so cute? What kind of damage do they do? Where do you find something like that ?
