Perfect day today. No wind. No cloud. Guest left late. Then I go out to Waterloo Line. Nothing at first but then T40 had a possum! Very old, smelly, maggoty. Never mind. Then next trap D39 had a rat in the same condition. On I go and to my surprise T41 had another possum. Only skin and bone left. Very good so far. Then I get to D42 and another rat. This one was not too bad.
Took the trap down to walkway for better access and open it and get rat out and throw it into bush. Just at that moment a young woman turns up. She stops and I get up and say just walk over the trap or walk to the side. She just looked and I said in fact you can help me setting the trap again because it is easier if someone puts their foot on it. No no she said. Just go to the side then. But she would not. She said do what you have to do and move the trap out of the walkway. I have time. I do not feel comfortable. What a girlie!
Anyway I did and she went her merry way. I get to trap T44 and yet another possum. Maybe the worst of the three? I use sticks to get rid of it. And that was it. Then on way back there were two more rats in trap A1. A really good day.
