PHOTO OF THE DAY: Large opossum caught

Kervin Isidore caught this large opossum (Didelphis marsupialis) in Grand Riviere, Gros Islet. Isidore told SNO: “Saturday night (Sept.  6) at about 10 p.m. I caught it walking down on a lamp post line. I threw a stone at it and it fell then a friend who lives nearby came and hit it with a stick and I held it by the tail.”

Isidore said an elderly man now has it “feeding”.
