Sault Ste. Marie Opossum

We trapped same possum twice in live trap which we are using to catch the neighbours chicken.

What can I do with it?

You could re-locate it, but I'm not sure that's legal. You could let it go because they are not vicious, they just "play dead" when they are scared, and they eat ticks. They can be dangerous to horses because of a virus in their urine.
