Tonight as I was leaving my house a pretty big possum came at me out of the dark all puffed and hissing. It backed me back up the stairs and into the house evn whan I threw a 16 ounce bottle of V8 at it and connected. So I went and got my pellet gun and shot it, dead. I have never seen a possum that agressive before and most likely would have let it be if I didn't think that thing would have messed with the wife and dogs. I do feel bad about killing it knowing I wasn't going to eat it but I don't feel guilty about protecting the wife and pups. Was I wrong? What would you have done? Please remeber I was on my way to work and he came after me and would't back down.
