I had skunks with the same problems at my grandmothers house found the live trap works good closer to their assumed living environment then a 22 will do the trick

Yea it could but if you try to put it outside the cats normal traveling grounds and has no need to search for food it may not... anyways its a live trap no harm.

Put the cats inside for a few nights, you'll clear out quite a few possums.

But there will always be another to take the place of the one you just trapped.

I have killed every possum that I have caught trespassing. I guess they have been quite successful stealing food. They have all been like 12-15 pounds. They always hiss and show their teeth, but never make any attempt to bite. And never get in a hurry to leave. I just shake them out of the cat house and shoot them as they walk away.

When I was a kid my dad would take me out hunting and trapping with him and catch them by hand and snap their necks for trapping bait.
