My pup just started raising hell, wanting out on the back porch where the food bowl is.
As soon as she could get through the door, she tore off into the dark barking and growling.
I went to put on some shoes, grab the 700 lumen flashlight and my Kimber .22.
By the time I got outside, I could see Lucy standing over something laying on the ground.
When I got closer, I could see that it was a possum, playing dead.
Probably not its best defensive tactic.
Not playing, now.
