This is interesting...they might not be the best looking critter in the paddock, but they are useful.

I know squat about "down under opossums" But, all ours are welcome on my farm anytime. They rarely get rabies, they kill and eat rats, mice, and snakes. I watched one kill and eat a huge copperhead last year. Never have had one attack my chickens, unlike raccoons, bob cats, eagles, hawks and a variety of other wildlife. The only thing that irritates me is they sometimes burrow under my house. We just trap them and release them at least 5 miles away.

Wait until you get a pair that decide to homestead your garage. Then see what you think.

Tried everything I could think of to trap the damn critters all to no avail. .22 woodsman solved the problem.
