Thais is correct. This morning wright in front of my apartment in Brooklyn there was a Possum.
Ick. I am not really an "animal" person. I always say "In the cage it's a pet, outta the cage it's vermin." This was one big vermin. I mean, a block away is Prospect Park. But this is 8th Ave and Union St. Something is wrong. I took some more pictures. Then I called a friend who is a Vet. She confirmed my urban intuition. Leave that thing alone. "Treat it like a big squirrel." Move on with your life. It is scared and not where it wants to be.
There have been other possi (My son says more than one Possum is a Possi, he said he learned that on I-Carley, but that is not so true.) sightings in Brooklyn. Around the Park in Kensington, and somewhere else in Brooklyn. But, shit The B69 and B71 are are within feet of these pictures.
It was not playing possum.
My son took this one
Hay, I know they were here first but, Eeeek.
