This is the time of year that 2 on the Beat does not look forward to walking out of the front door of her townhouse.
For some reason, there is always a possum, an ugly beast with bulging eyes, sitting on the perch of my neighbor’s patio fence.
I thought this nocturnal nuisance was supposed to be blind, but it appears to me that this one is following my every move as I take my dogs on their nightly walk.
So for you possum experts out there, should I:
1. Ignore it
2. Throw a rock at it
3. Call the exterminator
4. Ask my neighbor to move
Just kidding about #2 and #3.
I did a quick google search. I guess I should consider myself lucky, because most people have problems with possum living in their attic, in their shed or under their home.
If you are having a similar problem, there are several “wildlife removal companies ” in Houston. You can also notify animal control.
