Caught the Wrong Critter

Not the raccoon we were hoping for.

Sadly, an opossum was the one to get trapped. I actually like opossums, and they’re beneficial to have around. But since he would continually come back and fall for the same trick, it made sense to have him or her transported to a more rural area. We’ve decided not to continue with the bated traps until after the front garden’s landscaping has been completed and when little exotic goldfish are again available to restock my little pond. A day or two before I purchase the new fish, I will have Master Services come out and again place two traps. Anyway, I’ve been told that two blocks over, there is some raccoon roadkill, and perhaps this raccoon was the one who killed my tiny pets.
