I paid a hefty fee to remove a possum that was living in the crawl space of my Charlotte home. He captured them and sent them back to the wild. I don't know if my current visitor is living underneath me or in a neighbors house. Does anyone have any advice for the best and most cost effective approach at handling this? Is there a public authority that works on this?

Default For rent

I will rent you my dog. Seriously!! One morning she presented a small one About 8 or so inches long. Then the next morning another, Then another. This happened over a couple of weeks. Till she totaled six of these little critters. Then, one morning it happened. Bam! She drag up on the patio Mommy. Yes she got the Mommy also. They had been living under our out building. She also kills, birds (all sizes), moles, mice, rabbits and other little yard critters.

That really ain't nothing you should be proud of.. I bet if some coyote did that to your precious pet you would be singing a different tune.

She is a mix. Has lab and something else. She is med size. Short hair. She is house trained and crate trained. She retrieves very well. She has the run of the great room. That's it. She know that that is her space and does not roam the house. She goes out when she wants. Those nights it was funny. She would go to the door about every night just as it got dark.

Guess you might be right. But, I would hope that it is because she killed it's possum meals. I really do not worry that much about her. It is her fenced backyard. Her range. She wants to catch and kill, play with or who knows what with an animal that enters so be it it is nature.

Poor animals.

My dog has the same prey drive as your dog, but it's not something that I'd .

Instead I would
