Apologies about the photographs of my yucky garbage, but your intrepid cottager found two possum babies in her garbage can one week, and just happened to photograph the evidence. These babies crawled into the garbage, but apparently couldn't figure a way out. With the help of my husband, they quickly skittered to freedom (in my shed). The chickens are less than thrilled as you can imagine. The happy part of the story is of course, there were not any fatalities with either chicken nor opossum. May they continue to live in harmony.
