Post #9147180

Wish I'd had my camera. Little guy, size of a small cat, munching my berries tonight and I got REAL close before it noticed me. How can I repel this little guy? He was so dang brave - ran into the compost and stayed there while I asked him not to eat all my berries.

Would cayenne pepper work? Or what kind of fence would you even begin to construct to keep out a possum!?

Yikes.

I'd certainly give the cyanne a try.
