50. Probably
Probably would. Make it a mouse, and the chances go up, because those lil things are horrible and not at all friendly. I would actually have an easier time killing the robin, as birds kinda skeeve me out a bit. Chickens mainly, but my spite for them bleeds over into general Ornithophobia. Ok, not really phobia, I just don't like them, but I am fine going with my wife to feed ducks at the park. Even if I hate them little bastids.

Needless to say, big bird was never my favorite, and while I am intrigued by the double feather of the Emu, I would rather never meet one. And I feel a strange glee every time I eat a chicken nugget. Strangely, I kinda like Crows and Rooks.

And back to the subject at hand

Given that I have kept dead rats in my freezer (leading to some awesome quotes from unexpecting friends, btw), and I know that I can shoot quite well, I think that I would have little problem with doing a rat in for 10mil. But then, I consider that I have never knowingly killed any mammal or other vertibrate.

I have been hunting, and the only thing that stopped me was my unwillingness to take anything but a sure shot on the bouncing deer. But maybe I am too soft hearted and just covering myself.
I have managed to never hit anything with a car.
Somehow it was always other team members that delivered the lethal injection after surgery in relevant college courses.
When I go fishing, I let others catch and then knock the fish on the head. I think that's mainly an aversion to fish, given my allergies.

But maybe I am just not a killer. Show me the 10 mil and the rat, hand me the gun, and we will find out.
