Rabies is a big concern with coons and possums. When the population is large it is the most likely time for rabies to pass through the population. If
they keep showing up, or try to set up residence, then I would strongly recommend judiciously eliminating them. You don’t want to walk out one day
and see a rabid coon lunging at you.
If you see any coon or possum that is outside during the broad daylight, or otherwise walking and/or acting funny.
GET THE GUN AND SHOOT IT ON THE SPOT!!!!!!!! POST HASTE!!!!!!!
If you have pet cats, or dogs, then I would eliminate them on first sight. They are a big threat to the health of your pets.
I had a couple possums that tried to set up residence under the house. I just finished eliminating the second one last night.
Aim for the head. If you aim for the heart and lungs, they will probably have time to run under the house before they fall over dead. It may be hard
to retrieve them, and you won’t like the smell if you can’t. If you destroy their heart, they will have 10 to 20 seconds of controlled movement
left before they pass out. If you are concerned about them going back under the house before they die. Take and block off their hole or entrance point
when you catch them outside. That way they can’t run back under the house after being mortally wounded.
