Infested!



In the immortal words of Popeye, " That's all I's can take! I can't takes it no more!" I'm gettin' a bigger gun! Today! I chased one down all over the backyard yesterday evening. Must have hit the rat at least ten times at fairly close range. And it's still roaming around. Steve took the dogs out at about 10pm last night and Fido had one cornered and one went up a small tree. Steve got the dogs in and went out with the gun and cornered the big one and shot it at least five times and it came at him snarling.

I really don't like opossums. My boyfriend actually "rescued" a bunch of babies after their mom was killed on the road last summer. Those things were tiny and furry, and they still hissed at me if I would even look at them. They were really nasty creatures. And they smell terrible.

Fortunately, he eventually took them to an actual rescue place. Maybe you should get a small shotgun? It wouldn't be able to snarl at you if you hit it with a slug :)

Oh, I'm so sorry you've got that many hanging about. That's sure not a good thing. I'm for bigger better too. Get those things done away with asap.

A shotgun does sound like the answer.

Sure are nasty little buggers. Believe it or not we have a dog "Molly" an Australian Sheperd. Who has killed them and brought them to the porch as a present. But the shotgun would be a good way to go. Good luck.
