It was just your ordinary day. Up at 4:22 I caught a glimpse of the skunk trap under my morning flashlight as I cruised through the back yard. It's not good when the very first thing you do when you open your back door is take a really big sniff of air to see who might be wandering the byways, followed by a searchlight scanning the perimeter. I feel like I'm in a spy movie.
Uh oh ..... the trap was sprung and the door closed. I listened intently, but didn't hear any scratching. Probably another local kitty kitty of the sweet kind who couldn't resist the taste of tuna. Yup ... definitely SOMETHING in the trap.
At first I thought maybe the fox, but surely he's too big!! I finally got the tarp open enough to see the pink nose. I KNOW WHAT THIS IS!!! Mrs. (or Mr. as the case may be) OPOSSUM.
