Possums are misunderstood, beneficial and harmless animals. 

I suppose they carry rabies like all the other wild animals that roam around the yards in the dark-- we've had rabbits, foxes, raccoons (cute) and even a coyote(yuck!).

But I got to say, as small as a squirrel's brain is, we see more dead possums in the streets than squirrels.

Opossums almost NEVER carry rabies.  Their low body temperature usually kills the virus if they are exposed. 

Squirrels are faster and opossums naturally "play dead" if the animal feels threatened.

So true.     Squirrels are more likely to damage one's garden than a possum.

I haven't heard of a possum attacking a small dog or cat.    (but maybe they do,,,, I only have birds as pets).

We had possums all the time in our yard. But once they got out in the street the cars took care of them.

We see more dead possums in the street, than squirrels.

 

Time to feed the dogs.

You seem to know a lot about wild animals. You're not a vet are you?

I could have used some of your expertise when we had a squirrel up the chimney. One of the worst experiences anyone can have who has a fireplace.

I think we used to feed the dogs some brand that was horse meat,

But I have to say that I actually know some Kansans eat possum. So they might think it's too good for the dogs. LOL

Ech.  I think I can top that... the night a squirrel crawled down our chimney and INTO a burning fire...🙁   It did not survive.

No, I am not a vet, frequently see opossums in my own backyard at night, and was reading about them in the last month or two.  I do love wildlife and despise killing of any kind.  I admit I like a hamburger now and then, and feel guilty for it.

Have you actually eaten possum?

Eating bison is as Kansas as I get.

Contrary to popular belief, possums are not born dead on the side of the road.

"The Chicago Police Department this weekend confiscated a handgun that had the image of President Donald Trump etched into the side. The Glock 19 was one of 17 guns seized by police over the holiday weekend in Chicago's South Side.

The confiscated Trump gun had the president's image emblazoned upon stars and stripes along the gun's frame (grip handle) and rail. The slide that moves back and forth on the top part of the gun had the words "Trump 45th.".....

The AR-15 is the modern weapon of choice for mass murders.
 
It was used to kill my daughter and 16 others in school in 6 minutes.
