A Possum Problem

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.
