    magpie

    there is a magpie frequenting the garden the past few days with a mangled foot.. its hobbling about all over but still trying to survive. other magpies have been ganging up on it fairly regularly. Dispatch with air rifle or leave it to its own devices?

    I would shoot it anyway,

    and its mates.

    townie neighbors otherwise the lot would have been shot. there seems to be sh*t loads recently.. causing all kinds of nuisance.

    even the townies understand why magpies need reducing.

    Don't shoot it. Put a larsen out as part of your garden wild bird protection plan.

    If you have a larsen trap or you can get hold of one,catch the maggie and get it in there you will clear them maggies up in the area.

    +1 and forget the neighbours. As long as you have a safe backstop It's perfectly legal.
