Through October and November we received lots of Possum sighting reports ...
D Telfer London Ontario Canada said ... I saw one the other night in my neighbour's backyard. I live in a townhouse complex so the population density is very high around here. Was surprised to see one in the city like this.
Gerry from Frankford, Ontario, said ... Glenmiller Road at lock 5 on the Trent. Thursday morning in October, 7:15 am. I was walking through my back yard, an adult possum, that appeared to be in great shape. Stopped and had a look at me on my back deck, then disappeared into the hedge. I have lived here 20 years and this is my first sighting, what a treat, we have foxes and coyotes around, I hope they don't get it.
Amanda wrote in October ... We were finishing a nice family meal when one came up on our back deck and looked in on us! He was the size of a large cat or small raccoon. It was as if he wanted to come in for dinner ;) Haven't seen one yet around here. Aberfolyle, Ontario. Puslinch, Ontario, Canada
October 24, Debbie O'brien from South Etobicoke said ... I live in a 3 story apartment and I live in the basement apartment so my cats go in an out the window and today I went to let my cat in and then I saw the Possum at the end of the front yard..
October 27 Sylvia & Ron from Shallow Lake wrote to say ... Rather than put fish skins in the garbage, we put them out for the neighbour's cat, or so we thought. Using Manything, an older iPhone, and a light, have been monitoring and recording the area. Discovered Possums, a Raccoon, and the cat. Now with our first snowfall, are worrying how the Possums will survive the winter.
October 27 a reader from Newmarket said ... Just as it was beginning to get dark following our first snowfall of the year we noticed an unusual visitor trying to find some scattered seeds from under our bird feeder. This shy little guy moved on a few minutes later. Our first Possum sighting was rather exciting and we'll watch out for future visits.
