    There's a reason why they wear them little masks.

      People. I've seen them when they are accustomed to being fed, and I sure as hell don't want that. People where I now live shoot everything (and other people too) so the raccoons know to keep their distance, and the foxes and coyotes will not come onto my porch.

      I just read that possums only live one or two years, so I guess it's temporary. I do think they are cute, but I want them gone, of course. I have to say that the only critter I've ever seen eat a palmetto bug is a possum, so kudos for that.

      •  Well, au contraire mon frere. They don't stay away (4+ / 0-)

        from people.
        I was on the river with my wife. I saw a coon coming our way. My first thought was, "Uh-oh."
        Sure enough, we're in the tent trying our damndest to repopulate the earth when this fool starts trying to work his way in for the goodies.
        I reached out and popped him in the snout. He squeaked, took off and history was completed.
        I went out, and there he was on the bank rubbing his nose with a vengeance, and looking at me like I was the one that was crazy.
        The moral is that, no matter how important you think something is, you might be bumbling in to something else a hell of a lot more important,

      to my garage to get at the trash cans. They set off the house alarms. When the police arrived and we saw the paw marks on the door, I knew if was them. Four NYC cops got a good laugh when I spotted the two culprits watching us from the branches of the tree.
