Ron from Whitby wrote and sent us a picture ..... Family of Possums living under my neighbour's porch. He feeds them green veggies daily. So far have seen a baby & mom only. Got a pic today of mom!

Linda also wrote to say ..... I spotted a Possum yesterday, March 7, 2014 for the first time, wandering into our backyard in south Whitby, Consumers/Garden area. Had never seen one in nature. It stuck close to the fence, completely missing the bird feeder & seed on the snow. It finally climbed a bush at the far corner & walked north on the wooden fence.

A reader from Whitby wrote to tell us about her Possum sighting ..... One on the Deck, around 7:00 pm let the dogs out and was a Possum cornered by the dogs (2 little dogs who thought it was a Cat)....this was in Whitby, Ontario tonight March 17/14

Barbara from Whitby wrote to say ..... We have spotted a Possum twice now in our backyard in Whitby, Ontario. He hangs around our pond, which we keep open so the birds and other critters can have a drink. He seems interested in the bird seed and the carrots we put out for rabbits. However, when he approaches, the birds scatter.

Possum siting - July 2018 NEW
by: IamCraiger

I've spotted a creature under the bird feeders a few times in the past few weeks. At first I thought a big rat, but I got a good look at it tonight and after seeing the pic above, I'm sure it's a possum.

Brock st. & Taunton area, Whitby.

Possum Sighting - Thickson/Burns
by: Anonymous

Just saw one on my front porch when I opened the door. Scared the life out of me because I thought it was some kind of giant rat. I've never seen one in the 'wild' before.

Possum in Whitby
by: Doug

Big possum (size of a full grown cat) on our front porch now eating soft and dry cat food we put out for a few local feral cats. Centre St North and Chestnut. Saw it a few weeks ago also. I think it goes under the front porch sometimes. Doesn't move very fast but loves the cat food. Just threw out some celery for it. Harmless looking enough but don't think I will try and pet it. Not sure if it stays around here or wanders around. Not sure where it goes in the winter or how well it does in the cold and snow.

Possum on Montrose Cres
by: Anonymous

Just caught a Possum in a trap meant for a raccoon or skunk. Relocated it to Whitby south of highway 401 and released it. Whitby is like Noah's Ark, every animal under the sun!
