We have a cat door and 5 cats that go in and out, we live in a very urban neighborhood - as old as the French Quarter established 1719.
We are being invaded by raccoons. They've been coming in the house through the cat door. They're goddamn sneaky, they come in and dig in to the cat food and splash cat water all over the place, try to drag bags of cat food out the cat door.
Enough is enough. You can't shoot raccoons in city limits, but if they invade your house, is it justifiable to shoot 'em? I have a good collection of supersonic, .22 and .177 caliber pellet hunting rifles. I'm about to go Rambo on these little f*ckers. I'll have a sword if they attack, I doubt a pellet will kill one unless it's well aimed. I have real guns, but I think that's gonna break some serious laws if I use them. My neighbor's houses average 4' away on each side of ours. They invade around 11PM on. Sleeping hour.
If I'm off the forum for a while, I'll be getting a series of painful rabies shots.
This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
