Default First Opossum

This is my first opossum I have shot. He was caught in a foot trap using peanut butter. Pretty cool animal.

See my trapping pictures post for why I trap them. Hopefully I can prevent a cruel and long suffering death. Like that coyote surely was headed for.

Congrats on your first opossum, where I live, we usually have a good old fashioned 'possum killing every spring.
