//had to dispatch a fluffy, adorable little bunny this year after it got into my cool, delicious lettuce. It jumped like 8 feet high, then darted on the ground for a few feet before keeling over - all with its head blown off.

one more name on my "hope you get ass cancer" list

Now give him the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps he lobbethed thine Holy Hand grenade of Antioch. If he is religious he had no choice it is right there in the book of Armaments .

Possum. Big, freaky, lookin' biatch. Since when did they change it to opossum? When I was comin' up it was just possum. Opossum makes it sound like he's irish or something. Why do they gotta go changing everything?

Never seen a possum "attack" anything. If cornered, they fall over and play dead. It's a sort of paralytic seizure- the entire body becomes stiff as a board, falls over in an unnatural posture, the anal glands dump a stinky musk, and the tongue hangs out. They won't react to ANYTHING. My dog picked one up in his mouth and dragged it around. You can poke it with a stick and flip it over. But the funny thing is, they eyes still look at you.

Before that, they'll open their mouth and hiss, but it's all for show. They don't even have a bite reflex. I toyed with one with a stick that was hissing. It didn't try to bite the stick, and after a bit slowly looked around with its mouth open showing it was just kinda stuck that way and he didn't know what to do next.

Possums aren't exactly important wildlife- they have an average lifespan of only 1-1/2 years in the wild, freakishly short. They reproduce fast though. They don't stay in one den more than a few days, they won't be your problem for long.

Some are different from others. Some only hiss and then pass out, some will start an attack before they pass out.

simplicimus: Beating the Opossum (or Possum for the rest of us) sounds like a great euphemistic term. Sorry, I was too busy beating the possum to answer the phone.

I was trying to beat the possum, but he was playing dead.
