For the past 2 evenings, I have had the cutest little opossum in my barn. That being said, it's a opossum. I think it's going after the cat food and not the horse feed, I'm not sure it can get into my grain tubs, but, it's still a opossum. SO... My question is...
I called my brother and he is coming over tomorrow to try and trap it. He's going to look for it in the AM but I don't think it comes into the barn until the evening so he'll have to come back around dark time. If he takes it away, how far does he need to go with it to ensure that it doesn't come back? Can he turn it loose in my moms barn? (she only has feral cats - no livestock in her barn). She's about 2400 feet from my place... I geuss? I'm not good with distance, she's up on the hill, about a 10 minute walk through the woods. Would the opposum come back? I hate to kill it. That just isn't my style. I'll drive it across the county if I need to....
