I spent my first day in North Carolina helping my brother move two opossums from his basement out to a wooded area for release. He has a cat door and evidently the two opossums entered through it. A few days ago, he was startled by what he thought at first was a snake hanging down from the overhead, but turned out to be an opossum.
He went to the city and they gave him a trap to catch it which he installed in his basement yesterday and caught one. Later that night, he heard a rustling in his garbage can, looked in and there was another one. He cornered it and put in in his dog kennel.
We took the two out to a wooded area.
My brother decided to set the trap again in his basement and just an hour ago, he called to say he had caught another one.
