Cutie Pie (Dean)

Help?

So...baby opossum in my back yard.

What do I do?

It's by our shed just lying there, but if something gets close to it - hello doggie -- it starts to make a clicky hiss noise, move its mouth, and curl its feet. I would say it's about 5-6 inches long.

It's all by itself. I don't know if it is sick or abandoned or what. This morning the dogs zoomed in on a white ball in the yard and when I chased them away, it was an adult opossum. Later in the day, bro said he saw it guarding the shed area. Methinks mommy has her liter or rest area under the shed.

So why is this baby all by itself outside of the shed?

Does anyone know what to do in this case?
