I don’t know the full story here but: Possums are mean, when they are confronted, like most animals can become when threatened. On a golf course? I’d have to ask was it attacking you? If so, it may have been rabid. I don’t read from the rehab center it was! You could have just ignored it. Not like there was a gator on the course, would you have done the same? Was it next to one of your golf balls you were about to hit? You could simple walk over with the head of your club, and scooted the ball away, possibly poke the possum to move on.
Possums (Opossums) are not my favorite wild animal either. I only shy them away. I had a Siberian Husky for 17-1/2 years. They confronted her often, she’d kill them, normal animal survival. She did not leave her yard to track them down, only killed them when they entered her yard unwelcomed and confronted her.
Back to the golfers: Were you physically threatened? I doubt it! These possums do have somewhat of a low human benefit. They eat insects, other small animals, moles etc., They do get into your trash however. I again doubt that is what was happening here. Did it make you feel like a big hunter to beat this, to suffer. Not even my Siberian did that. She never left them hurt to suffer. She killed them. She had more sympathy than you! (The Arlin Report comment)
Now she is a self proclaimed AGRICULTURAL GENIUS. (Arlin Report comment)

Gentlemen, the beginning of the new year is a great time to get a PSA test through your doctor. Get that prostate checked to find out if you are at risk for cancer. Do not put it off until you are in your 60s. I think the younger (in your 40s at least) is a good time to start monitoring your prostate. A high PSA doesn’t mean you have prostate cancer, it is an indicator you are at risk. Find out as soon as possible.
The sooner you find about about your prostate health condition, the more options you’ll have for treatment.
You’ll see all kinds of books on line that assure they can prevent cancer if you follow their eating and exercise guides. Most is BS. Sure you can lower risk with diet and exercise, but still be a high risk for cancer. GET TESTED.
Had I known then (back in my 50s or maybe even 40s what I found out last July (2019) I’d have gotten tested much earlier. I was 65 when first tested with PSA. It was extremely high. Got retested a year later, a little lower but still very high. Then I had a biopsy. Sure enough I had cancer. I had surgery in October of last year, removed the prostate and the pathology test following surgery indicated I was cancer free. I go for another test the end of this month, just to be sure there aren’t any cancer cells that went undetected.
Sooner is better than later when it comes to your health.
Here is to a healthy new year!
