You got to be kidding a possum gets his day in court but the average poor/indigent person can't even see the light of justice in any Noeth Carolina courtroom without bigotry, bias, and constant frauds applied by officers of the courts to court process...especially in the states child protection proceedings. yeahhhhh. Right on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Darn it all--what will Granny make that special Uncle Jed birthday pie from now?

In the past I believe they've "dropped" dead possums in Brasstown. I imagine that's where this is headed...

It's what I'd do. Kill the possum, then drop it. Let PETA scream, as the judge has already ruled the pest must be killed or liberated. If they drop it dead, it's all good. Not going to traumatize any local kid, they all sneak out at night and hunt possum anyway.

As for PETA, last night, I had seakitten for supper, my wife ate the turkey because it refused to fetch the newspaper.

So ... what about the poor, victimized groundhog?

I think this is great. I don't think animals should ever be used like toys. Any effort to minimize suffering of any living thing is laudable.

I'm just glad that PETA spends the donations freely given to it so wisely.

But why do they drop the possum in the first place?
