1 Opossums all over! on Mon Oct 09, 2017 5:01 pm

So the opossums keep visiting us almost nightly. My two Golden Retreivers won't attack them, they just bark at them, which is good, I don't want the possums hurt or killed.. they don't do any damage and don't carry rabies or other diseases. I have "saved" several opossums at my place of work that wandered into the big roll up warehouse doors that are sometimes open at night. One was in my bosse's office.. the boss and everyone else was terrified by him. I just grabbed him by the tail and put him into a box to be released a few miles down the road. Young possums can actually be held once you show them that you are not going to harm them. They may open their mouths and hiss, but it's all just a bluff. Once you hold the little scared guys, they seem to relax in your arms, almost like they feel protected. If you have these animals visiting your yard at night, don't harm them. Opossums can be beneficial for your garden, they eating snails, slugs, insects and sometimes even small rodents. They’ll even clean up spilled garbage and fruit that has fallen off trees. And they don't knock over trash cans or kill chickens!

I agree , most people think its the Opossums killing off the chickens , which they could if it was a small or very young one ,other wise they are scavengers like you say cleaning up fruit and left over feed .. the culprits that are chicken killers are raccoons for sure  I have seen it first hand
