A possum stood still in my headlights directly in front of me as I rounded a corner.
I didn’t swerve and felt a bump. Had it been a thump I’d have been sure I’d killed it but the bump made me wonder if I’d only wounded it.
I have no compunction about killing pests but I wouldn’t leave one injured. I turned round in the first gate way I came to, went back and saw the possum walking towards me apparently uninjured.
Again I didn’t swerve and felt another bump but not a thump. I turned drove to the nearest gateway, turned round and drove back up the road.
When I rounded the corner the possum was running ahead of me then it dashed to the side of the road and up a power pole.
Possum 2 – me 0.
