A Night Visitor
We have a neighbor who traps them and takes them out to where he works on the railroad and turns them loose. I know that we may be separating a family, but what are we to do? We go though this all the time and it's a little dangerous for us to have them here. I often water at dusk, I'm out in the woods many times, I once went to turn off the hose at the faucet and a possum was right there hissing at me like a cat. I know not to reach my hand down into a clump of weeds....from scaring a snake one time. I guess that we have to be alert to most any kind of animal hiding nearby. As I look out to the woods, I wonder who is looking back. With a pond right next door...this is the perfect spot for a raccoon. A little fishing, a bath, food on the deck and friendly people. Well, not for long, my little friend....we are calling our trapper neighbor this morning.
