    That is insane.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Could have been feeding on berries of some sort?
    Certain birds were historically harvested when feeding on tawa or miro berries, as it flavoured (and coloured) the flesh.

    Looks a bit like ischaemic/dead bowel, although the colour isn't quite right. Don't eat that possum!

    Why would you gut a plucked possum?

    From what I can see the animal looks healthy enough (apart from being dead, plucked & gutted) so probably been eating berries as the other guys suggested.

    In my area there's heavy fruiting of tutu, whiteywood and himalayan honeysuckle... all have purple berries. Would be good to open up the stomach and identify what it was eating just before you came along.

    I would if I was going to eat it, sell it or dog food it...I would also have plucked more of the fur before doing so.

    Fair enough. I had not thought of consuming it (either for dogs or otherwise) as most people I know would knock over a goat and take the wheels rather than the possum carcass. I did not know there was a market for possum meat?

    I have found Koreans are the only Asians that eat it in this area, I have a mate supplying a family on a regular basis...when sold as pet food it fetches around the $1 to $1.50 a kilo...there is one outfit I have heard of that supplies the American pet food market.
