Dear List,

  I have a HUGE possum nest in one of my trees, about 30-35 ft up.  (holly 
tree) I saw the adult possum peering at me from over the edge of the nest.  
The nest is about 3 feet in diameter!  Am assuming that the nest if full of 
babies.  Yikes!  All I can think about is the utterly destroyed prized 
beefsteak tomatoes in my garden last summer.  I must get rid of these 
possums.  How do I do that?  I don't want to offend anyone on the list, but 
quite frankly, I don't care if they get killed or not.  I just want them 
gone - and fast!

  Called one animal removal company and got a $275 quote.  Good grief!
