    Possums eat tics, including tics that carry Lyme disease. They scavenge and eat rotting dead carcasses that would otherwise result in disease being spread. Killing possums is not only wrong, it harms the local eco-system. Leave them alone. They hiss when scared, not in challenge. Be the animal with intelligence and know when to just leave the smaller, uglier mammal alone.

    This is nothing but raccoon propaganda (a la Jonah Goldberg’s theory of bear propaganda). Trash pandas may look cute, but they are all terrorists in real life. I had to fend off raccoon home invasions growing up. They should be grateful that we showed them mercy through catch & release, instead of droning them like ISIS.
