Two in Welland

Last night sitting by our bonfire a large Possum came through our yard, dug some old fishing worms in our flower bed, then climbed the back fence and stopped there for about and hour before taking off.

Today, my husband found a smaller Possum curled up in a metal barrel in his garage.

When he tapped the barrel the eyes opened to reveal it was still alive.

Now with a lid on the barrel we are trying to figure out what to do with this uninvited guest.

You could release him away from your house, perhaps a ravine in an isolated location.

Possums are pretty harmless, they don't usually fight back and will "play dead" when they feel threatened.
