Found an opossum in the chicken house

Opossum is the proper name, usually just call them possum. It was a skinny thing, so I caught it and let it go.

 
That has happened here, too.
But my wife takes no prisoners.
I would have preferred to shoo him out and on his way, but Mama rules the hen house, stables, and garden.

I just could not bring myself to harm such a starved poor animal.

I started closing the chicken house up, and put some feed outside for the poor creature.
 
Now, when the raccoon came, scaled 6 feet of chainlink fence and killed one of our hens, then it became personal.
If he never came back again, he would still be alive today. I caught him using a live trap, and since it is illegal in Florida to relocate a coon, I had no choice but to shoot him. I took no pleasure in it, and I wish he just would have stayed out in the woods.
But our chicken's protection is my responsibility.
