A recent article on the Field and Stream website refers to a Minnesota man, Dan Antilla, that thought a fox was stealing eggs from his family’s chicken coop. He was confused as to why the chickens were all still there, and he started getting really frustrated when they would roll up on his porch and poop. Then one day–his wife saw the culprit. It was a huge, 14-pound opossum!
Now, we don’t have opossum in Montana, but if you have ever been in a place where they do live, you know this is an extremely large one. Wow!
