Quote: Yes like I said, each and every time he discharges a pellet he`s committing an offence.

Sorry I assumed he was shooting responsibly - if he's firing towards a right of way, he's definitely committing an offence, you're right.

I hate other people's cats crapping on my garden, and when you suggest people should keep them indoors, the excuse is always "well, they're wild aren't they". Either they're pets, or wild, which?
Still, I would never shoot one. Partly because I know the pain it would cause if someone killed one of our pets, and partly because I wouldn't eat a cat...

That`s ok

What I was saying was that if kids are doing wrong, generally you don`t have to look that far to see what is influencing it, but using boredom is a bit of a lame excuse.

Quote: If people like shooting that much I don`t know why they don`t just join a club

They probably are members of a club, I dont know of any areas in this country that one can shoot without permission. Of course you can if you have a garden that meets the statistics already mentioned in the forum.

Not at all Bri. Nothing could e further from the truth.
Just don't see the point in causing pointless harm to anyone or anything.........(well with the exception of a few 'So called' togs on here) Wink

As for my cats catching birds..............you must be joking! Far to slow and I have more chance of catching them myself. Smile
After 'Cat proofing' my garden, they are confined to that area. The trouble is, when another cat get's in, it can't get out again. I then have to open the gate. Smile

I thought the worse when I opened the link but it wasn't as bad as the morons who poured petrol over and set light to a hedgehog in a Northampton Street. Someone called the police because it ran under a hedge which caught fire.

The police did nothing apparently, couldn't find an interpreter or something.

Quote: I also have two cats and they don't ever leave the garden.

Mine do as my garden's too big to cat proof. There is a device that you wire up around your garden and attach a collar to the cat and when s/he tries to jump up makes a noise. My cats have collars with a big bell attached but still manage to get mice and the odd birdSad

So... shooting wild animals to eat is pointless, eating animals that live their whole lives in a cage and they get their heads lopped off is OK?
Seems to me if you are interested in the welfare of animals, eating stuff shot in the wild is far better.

I think you just want to argue, which I'm a little surprised about Bri.
You strike me, and always have, as one of the strong members of epz and I'm a little surprised that you're acting a little silly here.
I'm not getting into a pointless argument with you and I'm sure you know what I meant earlier in this thread.

My last comment on this one as you're doing your best to turn this into another argument and that's not where I want to be.
I, as I'm sure you have, much better things to do. Wink

It is if you have a Tesco just up the road, can`t imagine you skinning a rabbit or preparing a wood pigeon Smile

Returning to the point - those that kicked the bird about will have likely been prompted by a leader in their peer group. It only takes one to make the sheep follow suit. But these 'kids' - as everyone likes to call them these days - are crying out for some discipline to instill a sense of self-worth and self-respect into their deprived consumer-object minds and bodies. The breakdown of family life, discipline and respect in our society has all but condemned many of these 'kids' to an uncertain and unenviable future.

In an Indian restaurant some years ago, we had the best tandoori that I've ever tasted. The place was busy and the waiter was some time clearing so we idly looked at the bones as we chatted. Then I spotted a scapula so we put the debris back onto the serving plate.

There was a doctor and a biologist among us and they both reckoned that we'd just eaten a cat!

"Laurel"

Pot... kettle...

Come on, you deliberately chose to ignore my point, I just reiterated it. I'm happy to agree to disagree.


Quote: So... shooting wild animals to eat is pointless

I won't bother trying to explain my point a third time, it's obviously too difficult for some to understand. If you're all happy to live off slabs of bland chicken raised in a cage, go ahead. Enjoy yourselves here, TTFN.
