I love how the camera man doesn't bother to scare away that cat, cause you know it most likely ain't diseased.

Jus' has a problem, y'know?

An opossum walking around in broad daylight? Wandering aimlessly and/or possessing poor motor skills?
Around here we call that "rabies."

Beaten. Was going to say this.

Once saw a raccoon ambling down the middle of the road at a leisurely pace. Damn near ran over it; it barely turned around when I beeped the car's horn. Rabid as a fangirl for sure. I should have run the poor thing over and put it out of its misery.

...also, a wild opossum will disembowel a cat in a heartbeat. Puppies, too. I've seen what they can do to a cat firsthand, and I've had to kill several of them (not at the same time) attempting to break into my neighbor's kennel.

Wild opossums do nothing to nobody and are the most preyed upon wild animal. Come on, you may as well be saying the Dalai Lama beat up Jackie Chan and stole your wallet.

No really man, wild opossums are basically like mountain lions or alaska bears or whatever

I don't know what kind of shitty cat varieties you've observed but mine regularly kill snakes, even poisonous ones. While I admit they might not be able to murder a possum I doubt a possum is faster than a snake or that it would ever present a real threat to a cat.
Possums are known as "Zorros" in most of Latin America and are basically a walking free meal for country folk.

Possums would regularly try to get into my mom's garden. My stepfather could walk up to them, wait for them to play dead, then pick them up by the tail and heave them out of the yard (assuming the dogs didn't get them first).

I've never seen anything killed by one of these things, let alone seen one do anything remotely aggressive.

Possums will fucking cut you wide open.

Any mammal can get rabies. However, the chance of rabies in an opossum is EXTREMELY RARE. This may have something to do with the opossumís low body temperature (94-97ļ F) making it difficult for the virus to survive in an opossumís body.

memedumpster - no disrespect, but I've seen this shit.

They have jaws like a dog, and they're pretty strong for their size... a lot stronger than a cat. My eyes have seen them being aggressive and trying to get into the kennels I mentioned earlier. I'm not talking about something someone said or passing an old wives tale, they can be motherfuckers.

That possum ain't playin' possum.

Old_Zircon - 2012-08-09

Can we have an "Oh Possum" tag please?

urbanelf - 2012-08-09

Get on linkin' it.

Old_Zircon - 2012-08-09

If you insist.

So I went and googled some approx. avg. bite strength in newtons:
Virginia Opossum - 30
Domestic Cat - 100
Human - 600
Rottweiler - 1500
Mastiff - 2500
Lion - 2700
Hyena - 4500
Great White Shark - 18000
T. Rex - 60000

So while I'd hate to grab a mad hissy one and get bit by all them little sharp teeth, opossums did not evolve their "shit yourself and faint" fighting move because of their powerful jaws being too badass to waste on mere self-defense.

ps. Little Japanese girls - 305 newtons, so [anime joke]
