I think the little possom in your yard is kinda cute. It makes me sad that the poor creature is hurt. I hope it will be alright.
You know I have kind of a sad possom story. It all happened one night I was driving to work. I live in Hollywood, and in a very residential section, so it's not common that you see much wildlife running around my streets, however on this particular night, I was driving down my street kind of fast, because I was running a bit late, when I saw red eyes in my headlights, and then as I drew nearer I could see the outline of a fairly large possom sitting in the middle of the street. I couldn't swerve out of the way, because there was a car right next to me in the next lane, and I couldn't slow down because someone was closing in on me from behind and the possom was just sitting there, frozen in the road. So, I thought that the only thing I could do was to try to angle my car in such a way, that the under-belly of my car would go over the possom, and that as long as it didn't move, I wouldn't hit it with my wheels. Well, just as I was over the poor creature, and beginning to think I was going get passed it without hitting it, I felt the thud on my back wheels. I looked out my rear veiw mirror and I saw it in the street, but I don't know if I killed it or not. All I could think was, "Why did you move, Possom? You would have been safe, if you hadn't have moved." I couldn't go back, because I was late for work,and because it was late at night, close to midnight, plus I was so freaked out about it, I was kind of in a daze. I'd never hit an animal before in my life. The next morning when I came home, I didn't see a dead possom on the road or any blood or evidence that there had been a dead possom, so I can only hope that the poor creature was OK.
