This guy, however, is not free.

Yet another possum trapped in the house over night. They just won't learn, keep coming inside. It'll be released somewhere a fair distance from home. It has to be far enough away that they can't find their way back because if they can, they will.
They may look cute but they're a mighty pest. They jump from the trees onto the roof and then run around looking for the way in. Sound like a herd of bloody elephants. A large herd of large elephants. Often they'll take up residence inside the walls. Then you can hear them, scratching away. I hear them every night outside my bedroom. If you've never heard a possum before it's the scariest sound.
