'Possum in My Yard... What Do I Do?

The last few weeks, my Setters have been acting positively nuts, trying to climb my privacy fence, and this morning it was worse than usual. I brought them inside, but left them out about a half hour later. That's when I saw it... a HUGE opossum sitting on top of my privacy fence. The thing is enormous, and hissed & snarled like crazy at us. I got the dogs in, but now I have a possum problem.

It cannot life in my yard with the dogs, it just can't. Will I have to live trap it? If it's been brave enough to be here with 2 85 lb dogs after it so far, I can't see it leaving. I don't have the money to call an exterminator.
