Tale of a possum or two

Fred was cutting the grass this morning. He has an area in the back yard where he collects the grass cuttings, like a compost or sorts... Well, what he found was more than compost. He said there was a momma possum and 5 babies. All were dead except one and he wasn't far behind. So Fred went and buried them all. Though I told him it was a bit cruel to bury the one still breathing... I told him he should have called me, but after thinking about it, I'm glad he didn't.
By the way, this picture is from the internet.... I tried to find a "cute" possum picture, but I don't think there is such a thing! lol

  1. ha, ha. I was looking at the opossum in the picture and thinking he doesn't look sick to me. Glad you clarified that that wasn't the one that was alive. Silly me.
