We trapped a live Opossum in Peterborough this month at Milltown Mini Golf behind the Swiss Chalet on Lansdowne Street. We had the trap set to catch skunks and we cought the Opossum instead. I let it go where we trapped it because they don’t seem to be a threat of any kind. It was very timid and didn’t want to leave the trap. We left it alone and finally after more that one hour it left the trap.
