Raccoon and Possum picking up the remnants of some hand broadcast corn.

I don't know how it ended....but my money is the coon.

Possum putting up his best bluff...though.

I don't know how tenacious a Possum is, but I know Raccoon's are just miniature Bears.

yeah the coon probably prevailed but possums are no push over - they can get nasty

Opossums are a push over, I let one out of my dog proof trap yesterday alive, can't do that with a coon w/o getting some collateral damage!

Isn't that the truth! I've also released possums from Dog Proof traps. Just step on them with your boot on their shoulder and head. They don't struggle much. Coon would be all over you.

Both are rabies carriers -- opossums will occasionally get a free pass depending on where they are trying to wreak havoc.

Actually it impossible for an opossum to get rabies.

Not true. Possums body temp makes it highly unlikely for them to carry rabies

That is true. Maybe because even critters with rabies don't want to taste one of those things! eek

Had a pet opossum for a while in college. I ran him down one night on the sidewalk outside a buddies house and grabbed him with a leather work glove on. We kept him in a pen in his garage for a few months. You could reach in and grab him and he would hiss and show his teeth every time but never attempted to bit anyone.

I wouldn't try it with a coon.


It's hell eatin em live

Possum = Good animal to have. Can't hardly get rabies, venomous snakes hardly faze them, they eat all the dead, rotting, stinky stuff. They are the only marsupial in North America. Like most marsupials, the male opossum has a forked penis bearing twin glandes (ok, he's a little weird, I'll admit). Female opossums have a pouch. I use to not be very nice to possums. But after I learned a little bit about them (thank you cable tv) I just ignore them anymore.
Coon = I don't know one beneficial thing about them. Had a couple growing up. Raised them since pups. Sure enough, one fine Sunday afternoon, Mr. Coon goes berserk, bites a plug out of my Dad's hand and then, the fight was on, Jack, lol! There was broken pool sticks, chairs, a whole thru the back screen door, lol. Mr. Coon shimmied up a tree and I haven't seen him since, and that was over 40 years ago! I really think they're useless.


Mmmm Hmmm

I used to work with an old black man named Shorty Bevels. He would eat every live possum I brought him. Not right there on spot, of course. He would take them home and kill em, skin em, cook em, THEN he would eat them. Crazy, right?

Iíve watched them crawl out of some nasty spots. I might eat one if I was starving but Jed would have to clean it and Granny would have to cook it.
