This opossum attacked my chickens. The Rooster stepped in but got battered. When I frantically tried to shoo it from the coop-- opossum turned toward me!
Yes the poor creature would have killed the chickens and would have hurt me too; had to take it's life. I feel bad as I know all God's creatures have a golden side, a useful side. Opossums, as I researched, eat a multitude of Ticks. They keep the Lyme disease from the tick born virus away from us.
