Look what John caught in a trap!

We had a suspicion that some nocturnal creature was visiting us, so John set a trap (a harmless one). It was an opossum! I was happy to see it, because we toted one off a couple of years ago thinking that they were "bad" to have around the house -- sort of like having a rat. I then learned how beneficial they are (they eat slugs for one). So, we released him in the backyard. I hope we didn't scare him away.
