I don't normally post photos of things I don't like (read detest) but have decided to make an exception and put this photo up. In NZ we don't have many big pests (no foxes, cougars or other varmints!) but the Possom is a real menace in our forests eating native birds' eggs and browsing and destroying the trees.
This young marsupial must have left Mum and has found a home in an old barn. Of course the dog was very interested.
In spite of all the bush around us we don't have as many possoms as we could have but to me, one possom is one possom too many!
