    Brasstown having possum drop, without live possum
    Dec 27,`12 -- A New Year's Eve possum drop that attracts thousands of people to a tiny western North Carolina town will go on this year, with one big change: It won't involve a live possum.

    Good. I'm not a big fan of PETA, but good for them. No need to use live animals this way for our amusement.

    Was the possum actually dropped forcefully to the ground and injured? Or just "lowered" and then let go? Not that it matters, I'm sure it was stressful for the possum either way.
