This may seem far-fetched but sometimes critters seek plants out as a
source of water.  Perhaps a little watering dish with the name "Peter
Possum" would help.

Those opposums can be pesty - I've had them get after chickens, eat
the cat food, and they may be the #1 road kill in Georgia.

I like the shotgun idea but it might frighten the neighbors! And yes
they are OK to eat - just make sure to grain feed them for a while
before eating.  I have recipes if you're interested (of course they
will include chilis).

Just my two bits!

Rockin' Randy

They are good baked like a roast
especially if you don't know what you are eating  :)
Cats wouldn't kill us off.

They need someone to work the can opener.
