A strange creature that I had never spotted before died in my barnyard this week . I know it is a Virginia Opossum opossum but did not know they lived in the area.

(Note: The Virginia Opossum has been expanding its range northward into the Kawarthas in recent years. I hear of four or five sightings on an average year. They have even turned up right in Peterborough. D.M.)
