WTF???  Why do you think I would have a clue?  I'm sure you can get diseases from many animals given the right circumstances.
 
I have to ask, though, what is the origin of this question, MH?  This sounds like the makings of an interesting story!

you live in texas, i would assume you have had a fair share of sightings and heard some stories, in minnesota a possum isnt a creature you just see every day, and you were in here when i wrote that message!!!

Oh, o.k., thanks for the vote of confidence.Wink  I can't say I've ever handled any possum guts, but I've eaten quite a few strange critters before.  Ever tried armadillo?  I did once... tasted a little like chicken!

Yes to both!  In fact, I've eaten both quite a few times and both are actually pretty good when prepared right!  Come down for a visit, and you can try alligator in several local restaurants serving Cajun food.

True Cajun food isn't overly hot, but spicy in a flavorful kind of way.  If it's overpowered by heat, it isn't good Cajun food, my friend!  My dad's family is from Baton Rouge and one of his cousins was a gourmet cook, so I do know good Cajun food.

I've killed my share of possum but ain't never cared to gut one. I had 4 Perdue broiler houses for 11 yrs. and possum love them day old chicks.
But I have a few cousins in Edgecombe county that eat possum and coon now and then and other than being big foot ugly they never got sick from it. I spect as long as it ain't rotten and you wash your hands good you can gut as many as you want.
He's a scavenger like a turtle or a coot so if you don't mind the fishy/mud taste

my wifes cousin is a hot sauce collector, and he has some stuff called da bomb, and they also have some stuff called da bomb beyond insanity, and im not kidding you here, at hunting camp 2yrs ago we dumped out 2 quart jars of homemade salsa and then dipped a toothpick in the bottle of da bomb beyond insanity and then stirred it around in the salsa and im telling you that stuff was so hot from that little bit on the end of the toothpick that i got some on my finger from dipping a chip in the bowl and then rubbed my forehead on accident with that finger and my forehead turned red and started to burn also, and its nowhere near as hot as most of the stuff on that website, so i cant imagine how bad that other stuff is, anything you eat that has a warning label on it is crazy.

Why not just light a blowtorch and open you mouth?  I enjoy spicy, but when you can't breathe it is too hot!

 What we need to find is a poster from Louisiana, he will know the answer for sure.  Talking about all this hot stuff reminds me of this joke
_________________________________________________________________
I went grocery shopping recently while not being altogether
sure that course of action was a wise one.
 

You see, the previous evening I had prepared and consumed a
massive quantity of my patented 'You're
definitely going to sh*t yourself' chili. Tasty stuff,
albeit hot to the point of being painful, which comes 
with a written guarantee from me that if you eat the next
day both of your a$$ cheeks WILL fall off. 
    
  Here's the thing. I had awakened that morning, and even
after two cups of coffee (and all of you know 
what I mean) nothing happened. No 'Watson's
Movement 2'. Despite habanera peppers swimming their 
way through my intestinal tract, I appeared to be unable to
create the usual morning symphony referred 
to by my next door neighbors as thunder and lightning. 
     
  Knowing that a time of reckoning had to come, yet not sure
of just when, I bravely set off for the 
market; a local Wal-Mart grocery store that I often haunt
in search of tasty tidbits. 
    
  Upon entering the store at first all seemed normal. I
selected a cart and began pushing it about 
dropping items in for purchase. It wasn't until I was
at the opposite end of the store from the
restrooms that the pain hit me. Oh, don't look at me
like you don't know what I'm talking about. 
I'm referring to that 'Uh oh, gotta go' pain
that always seems to hit us at the wrong time. The thing 
is, this pain was different. 
    
  The habaneras in the chili from the night before were
staging a revolt. In a mad rush for freedom 
they bullied their way through the small intestines,
forcing their way into the large intestines, and 
before I could take one step in the direction of the
restrooms which would bring sweet relief, it
happened. The peppers fired a warning shot. 
   
 There I stood, alone in the spice and baking aisle,
suddenly enveloped in a noxious cloud the likes of 
which has never before been recorded. I was afraid to move
for fear that more of this vile odor might 
escape me. Slowly, oh so slowly, the pressure seemed to
leave the lower part of my body, and I began 
to move up the aisle and out of it, just as an elderly
woman turned into it. 
   
  I don't know what made me do it, but I stopped to see
what her reaction would be to the malodorous 
effluvium that refused to dissipate, as she walked into it
unsuspecting. Have you ever been torn in two
different directions emotionally? Here's what I mean,
and I'm sure some of you at least will be able 
to relate. 
    
  I could've warned that poor woman but didn't. I
simply watched as she walked into an invisible, and 
apparently indestructible, wall of odor so terrible that
all she could do before gathering her senses and
running, was to stand there blinking and waving her arms
about her head as though trying to ward off
angry bees. This, of course, made me feel terrible, but
then made me laugh. Mistake. 
   
  Here's the thing. When you laugh, it's hard to keep
things 'clamped down', if you know what I mean.
  With each new guffaw an explosive issue burst forth from
my nether region. Some were so loud and 
echoing that I was later told a few folks in other aisles
had ducked, fearing that someone was robbing 
the store and firing off a shotgun. 
    
  Suddenly things were no longer funny. IT was coming, and I
raced off through the store towards the 
restrooms, laying down a cloud the whole way, praying that
I'd make it before the grand mal assplosion took place. 
   
  Luck was on my side. Just in the nick of time I got to the
john, began the inevitable 'Oh my God', floating 
above the toilet seat because my ass is burning SO BAD,
purging. One poor fellow walked in while I was 
in the middle of what is the true meaning of 'Shock and
Awe'. He made a gagging sound, and disgustedly 
said, 'Sonofabitch!', then quickly left. 
    

  Once finished I left the restroom, reacquired my partially
filled cart intending to carry on with my shopping

when a store employee approached me and said, 'Sir,
you might want to step outside for a few minutes. 
It appears some prankster set off a stink bomb in the
store. The manager is going to run the vent fans on 
high for a minute or two which ought to take care of the
problem.' 
   
  That of course set me off again, causing residual gases to
escape me. The employee took one sniff,
jumped back pulling his shirt up to cover his nose and,
pointing at me in an accusing manner shouted, 
'IT'S YOU!', then ran off returning moments
later with the manager. I was unceremoniously escorted
from the premises and asked none too kindly not to return.
   
  Home again without having shopped, I realized that there
was nothing to eat but leftover chili, so I
consumed two more bowls. The next day I went to shop at
Albertson's. I can't say anymore about 
that because we are in court over the whole matter.
 

Bastards claim they're going to have to repaint
the store..

If he'd only known where this was going!    Farter
It may be for the best though. If I recall, seems like after one night the boys had coon burgers and possum stew there was a similar story of a hardware store having to close because of a skunk getting in. Thing is, they never found a skunk and there just ain't any around here anyway. Strange that the store was only about six miles from their trailer. Loco

SAKO!!!!! That's hilarious brother......Laugh
 
I have a rather simialar story to share. Mine is due to ONIONS AND PIZZA AND CHEAP BEER.
I was a teenager and was managing an auto parts store. Jack who was an elderly black man, and quite a colorful character himself, he and I had opened the store and were working on pricing and stocking, when the combination mentioned above began to ferment.
 Now we all know that the fermentation process causes an expansion of rather noxious and warm gasses. It was just about then that I had a deep rumbling and cramping begin taking place, when we heard the door warning that signaled the possibility of a customer, Jack said I'll get it and off he went to the counter, I thought I'll hold on to this and blast Jack when he gets back, so here I am holding the expanding warm gasses which are building quite a bit of pressure. I'm all about a little bit of self sufferage in order to lay one on a fellow worker, and friend.
It was then that the pressure valve couldn't handle the pressure anymore, and out it started, with or without my consent made no difference, You know how a wet feeling warm sensation signals a real stinker? just a small bloop is like the tooth pick that Pyro mentioned, and can spice the whole thing, imagine using the whole bottle. That's exactly what happened, all of it came out NOT A BLOOP, THE WHOLE DAMNED THING, and it lasted for a good ten seconds. It came circling up around my shirt collar and proceede to beat up on me something fierce, it's awful when your own beat up on you, and this thing had a pulse, I'm telling you guys, IT WAS ALIVE, and had CLAWS!!!!!
I'm just about to stand up and unass the area of operations, when I feel this tapping on my shoulder, I turn to see a little old lady, she says Sonny, ahem Sonny, just then the ridges began to show on her forehead as her nose started to crinkle and the glasses that were on the end of her nose rode up, she turned PLAID, and said OH MERCY!!!! My GOD HAVE MERCY!!! and she unassed the store, walker left behind, her poor husband came calling MARTHA, MARTHA? as I was getting out of the crime scene, he walked into the odiferous perimeter which was starting to spread RAPIDLY, and he says JUDAS PRIEST!!! What the F#$K!!!! and then trips over his wifes walker as he was trying to get out of the fog rather hurriedly.
The chain of stores went out of business about two years later. LAWYERS!!!!!!

This sounds like the guy who wanted to become a member at a wealthy golf club. They did not want him to become a memeber, so they thought of setting an impossible criteria. Okay, they say, he has to practise abstinence for a month. Ok he said, but he knew the difficulty as he had a very sexy wife. So one week, fine, two weeks, starting to struggle. Third week, cold showers twice a day. The fourth week he comes storming into the golf club and says, You can keep your membership, and thanks to you I am no longer welcome at the grocery store. What, asked the commitee, has that to do with us! Well, he said, everything went fine, untill the last week when we went shopping. She had on this mini-skirt, and when she bent over the frozen fridge to pick out a chicken, well, that is when I lost my membership and got banned from the store!!!
