4. this is a small fenced back yard people!
Edited on Wed Jan-12-05 05:35 PM by medeak

thanks for no help whatsoever! We don't want to use the bb gun again..(set on lowest power) but we have TWO owls...the one hasn't returned yet....fingers crossed. would be ideal if I could accompany my little dog out into fenced backyard while I'm at work..and also in middle of night when he feels the urge to tinkle....but this is reality.

FELONY? Protected species? You obviously don't live in my part of the barren tundra.

edited to say...should have made point that both owls were facing dog door...and 14 lb dog is using living room as toilet for now as terrified. (can't blame him) This is not a situation where animals are left in the fenced back yard...but they need to piss and poo daily!
