Now that’s what I call a dead possum

[The possum hanging around last year] [Not much left after today's storm]News from the front: The dead possum has fallen.

Back in April last year, a possum electrocuted itself and was left dangling from an electricity wire outside our house. It was there for months, gradually decomposing, but still hanging in there.

Well, this evening there was a reasonably fierce thunderstorm, and I noticed afterwards that the possum had fallen. Its remains now sit on the nature strip.

Vale, Possum.

PS. Wanna know the REALLY gross bit? The tail is still up there.
