I've been having a few issues with possums in my barn lately. On Wednesday, I shot a female possum with 5 babies (oh boy-6 possums with one bullet!!!). I cleaned up the possum poop she had deposited near my barn cats food bowl (it's only filled with a limited amount of food twice daily so it shouldn't be a draw for wild critters). This morning there was another "deposit" near the food bowl. It was very similar to the poop that came out of the newly dead possum. I'm quite sure it's not from my cats-they much prefer my garden! Besides it doesn't really look like cat poop (believe me, I've seen LOTS of cat poop) and most cats don't like to defecate near where they eat. So my question is are possums monogamous? I really wonder since I shot two possums early last winter and I think one was a male and one a female. Hopefully there are too many left around my place, I'm tired of disposing of them! Thanks.
