    I killed it... I shot it... IT'S DEAD. [​IMG]
    I know every animal has a place in this world, BUT not near my chicken coop!

    BIG BIG BIG Possum... BIGGER THAN MY KITTY KITTY! He was slunking around ( I think he was hidden behind trash pile that the neighbors started burning today) I went !!!! The neighbors own guns... I told them "ew ew ew GET IT GET IT!!!!!!!" After realizing the threat that got 2 guns... "2 guns!? Uhm... Why?" It's your yard, your chickens.... You're going to kill it!"

    This is where I freaked! LOL. ME KILL SOMETHING. But then, he started walking towards the coop. No doubt then. He showed me how to shoot it. Then they said the second gun was incase I missed and it tried to run. LOL...


    FIRST SHOT I GOT IT!!!!!!!!


    Sorry, I know this is a waste of your time but I'm HAPPY [​IMG]

    fabulous! i agree, all critters have a purpose and place, but rogues eating my chickens are stepping on my boundary line.

    Hooray! Killed the terrorist ....I mean, predator.
    I am so proud of you. [​IMG]
    Feels good to defend what is yours, doesn't it?
    Makes history class so much more interesting.

    I have to shoot a few times before I hit it. I always start shaking and know I should use a rifle instead of a pistol but I love my little .38 Saturday Night Special.[​IMG]
