Possum Wrangling, Queens-Style

opossum2.jpgYou will recall that, after our first opossum sighting (below), BestFriend confided that she had encountered another of these beasts on her welcome mat in the hallway of her apartment building in Queens Village.  In the interests of furthering enlightened urban wildlife management techniques, we are pleased to report that BestFriend dislodged the menacing marsupial with a hail of tomato soup cans (she was, thank God, returning from the supermarket). For larger mammals, such as badgers, one might wish to stow a can or two of Progresso pasta and bean or hearty chicken noodle.

Isn't it funny how those rural folks insist they need  guns because they live near wild animals?

I just saw another possum on my block in Maspeth, Queens. This is the third possum i've seen in 2 weeks -- in two different areas. What gives? 311 says they can't do anything unless it attacks you or clearly shows signs of rabies...
