ENCOUNTER WITH AN OPOSSUM

Warning: contains graphic descriptions!
The other day I was walking through the dining room and just happened to look out the window and there sitting right in the door to the garage was an opossum. I jumped into the office and grabbed my BB gun, I slipped out the door very quietly and walked back to the garage. Andy was right behind me with another BB gun and Sam was right behind him with a pitch fork. We went into the garage and shut the door behind us. At first we couldn't find it, so we started digging around in the junk. I finally found it hiding behind a crate and shot it in the nose, then Andy shot at it and missed. My shot was not enough to kill it and we only had one BB a piece. So I sent Andy in to get me another BB. While we were waiting for Andy the opossum crawled up on top of the mower, well Sam, he wanted to knock it out so he drew back his fist and hit it as hard as he could right on the head. He let out a scream of pain loud enough to be heard a mile away. Then he said, "that thing's head is hard." About that time Andy got back with my BB, so I loaded up and shot it in the eye. You would think that would kill it ,but no sir it was still alive. So I just did what I had to do, I know everyone will say it was nasty and gross but it had to be done. I grabbed a rubber mallet and bashed on it's head until it stopped moving . That's why it's head is so bloody. That's one more thing to add to the list of things I have humanely removed from this earth.

"Humanely?" HA! That doesn't sound very human. I guess I don't really care how you killed it, I'm just glad it's dead. I think possums so go extinct. :)
LOL! Shooting it with a BB gun? That sounds like something Evan would do. :P

Oops. I meant "should go extinct" not "so go extinct." I always proof read my comments before I post them, but some how I always manage to miss something. :(

buckmaster,
just before we were going to go to church; Evan and I went on our daily rounds of checking the outbuildings for birds. I had the black gun that our neighbor gave us. After I flushed the pigeons up I got in to cover and wated for them to land on one of the outbuildings. When they did, I shot and saw ond of them flip off the outbuilding. Evan went over to check it out and fond it still flaping. He put it out for good; we gave it to dasiy (who eats all the birds we shoot).
