Ted from Wasaga Beach wrote today to tell us ..... I saw a Possum last night, picking up sunflower seeds from the grass around my bird feeders - what a surprise and a delight.
Kirk and Michelle from Etobicoke, Ontario, told us ..... I went to close the front door and there was a Possum at our front door on the veranda just sitting there! We had never saw one before so we googled and found pictures of them! It was definitely a possum!
Gail from Cobourg, Ontario, wrote to say ..... My husband saw a possum here in Cobourg for the first time last night. He says the animal, at about midnight, wandered into the middle of the road, then thought better of it and ambled back. We did not know we had marsupials in Ontario - fascinating!
A reader said ..... I peeked out my side porch door and saw a Possum. I did not even know for sure what I had just seen, so Googled it right away. In fact, at first I thought it was a huge rat until it turned to look at me. It had a rather cute face, with a big rat body!
A reader from Hamilton, Ontario, says ..... Saw one last night in the backyard sneaking alongside the fence.
