"Rochester homeowner Gwen Byrd is scared to go into parts of her own home in the dark. She says a frightening-looking animal has been under her porch all winter long and may have dug a tunnel through the walls of her house.

The rodent-like animal is wrinkled, hairless and "walks like a dog." And it has lived there for at least two years."

Could you imagine letting some mangy possum run you out of your own home?!

The herp derp is strong with that homeowner.

No, frankly I cannot.



If I was too stupid to operate a trap I would ask/hire someone to do it for me.

If anyone can remember, there was a thread about a year ago about a national chain fried chicken place that ran out of on sale fried-chicken and alot of urban city dwellers were all up in a rage that the store ran out of food,,,,yeah, same neighborhood as this hairles/chubacra/nutria/rat/possum thing.

Must be something in the air or water or the people are just fucking idiots.

It's dinner.

Gut and drain it.  Stuff with potatoes, carrots and onions and garlic.  Throw in salt, pepper and a dash of beer.  Wrap in tinfoil and put it in the coals.  It'll be done in about 1 1/2 hours.  Remove from coals and let the residual heat cook it.  Then remove foil and serve.
