Let them eat cake. Possums, that is…

I put most of a stale angel food cake out as trailcam bait the other day, curious to see what kind of critter would go for it.

About a day after it tossed it into our side yard next to a salt block for deer, an opossum showed up about 11:45 p.m. and ate part of it. He returned about the same time two nights later and carried away the remainder.

When I first saw him, I had high hopes of seeing a coyote pounce on him but he enjoyed his cake unmolested on both occasions.
