Default Possum versus oranges

My oranges have been ripening over the last few weeks and I was
looking forward to freshly squeezed juice. There are quite a few and
the plan was to leave them on the tree and pick a bucket or so as
needed. Then I found some on the grass with neat round holes chewed
in the side and no flesh. Looks like they will have to go in the
spare fridge instead.

I hope dear son-in-law learns to shoot his new rifle soon. It has
rubber bullets of course.

One shot Ratsak works on both rats and possums.
