Thanks for the replies.Unfortunately, I can't bring myself to eat squirrels. Rabbits on the other hand are delicious, but haven't had any around in a while. The cat and coyotes REALLY think they're delicious.
Oddly, it really seemed as if the squirrel was going after the robin, behavior I haven't seen before...
Charlie, having rid of 395 anything in a single night (or day) is impressive. I'm not familiar with mynahs but the numbers you encountered that evening seem very great.The worst I've encountered was when I got a call for Chipmunks from a friend. They said there was a bunch and were looking to be rid of them. When I arrived to the property I was shocked, as I stopped counting at 47 different ones in the front yard alone. That was with out any double counting, there were more but didn't want to get mixed up. The funny thing is, his wife was feeding them corn. Quite a few chunky ones. Anyway, the baiting stations really helped
Hey Zack no worries, I was entertained by your story and likely would have done the same, especially if it was your private land and you preferred having the robins around so you humanely protected them from that bullying red.As for sending animals to their great (whatever-it-is-depending-on-the-species) final resting place in the sky, I once did that to 395 mynahs (a pest bird in Hawaii where I used to shoot) in a single night. And the owner of that egg-laying farm sure was happy I was there to do it.
