When I find an animal dead in the neighborhood, especially one ignored by the canines which have excellent noses, I suspect they have been poisoned by people who misunderstand them. They say Opossums are large rats, but in fact they are marsupials, related to kangaroos. Opossums do great beneficial work, eating many ticks, insects and berries. But this one has blood about its neck, so it may have been attacked by another wild animal.
