    I got a catalog yesterday that had oil-based paintballs for animal marking. I mean, this could be very cool for me. I hate the stray dogs that walk my fence line looking for ways to get to my live-stock and chickens. Do you think getting plastered with a paintball gun that stains fur would make a difference to the dog or owners? Has anyone else tried this?

  2. That is brilliant! And if after the owners dont get the message...then you just upgrade .....[​IMG]
  3. I hope your neighbors are smarter than mine are ! Mine just can't seem to understand that their dogs have to stay home. But, I am working on it from a legal stand point and when it is all settled, I will have a dog story that you guys will not believe . . . .

  6. You will get to hear the story . . . . when all the dust settles. I can't talk about it now, the surprise element is my calling card here.

    (I know that the chances of neighbors finding this site is slim, but you never know ! [​IMG] )

    But, trust me, it will shock you . . . . [​IMG]

    Put a few frozen ones in there along with it. The dog will probly think twice about coming back.

    So how much do Paintball guns run? The paint pellets are not that pricey.

    I wish they made clear paintballs. If anyone finds them PLEASE let me know. My neighbors are my in-laws so I can't really leave there dog spotted. That would make for a family feud.
