This guy wandered onto the property while I was taking bird shots at the feeder. I acted quickly and got as many shots as I could close with the Tcon. Because I still needed to get the 12 ga and shoot him. They cary a disease that can be fatal to horses (bacteria in their fecies). They love to get in the horse feeders and eat, but they also crap where they eat as they eat.

Fantastic shots Silver. Very clear.

I would have done the same as you. I won't allow these diseases around my livestock or family.

I used to get opossums on my front porch in Detroit. (I fed stray cats and the opossums liked cat food.) We found that they really hate getting wet, especially when it's cold outside, so I put away my pellet gun and used a large cup of cold water. They learned to fear me. They used to hiss and growl, but after a few splashes, if they saw me looking out the window they would leave.
