Pest Control

It is inevitable that there will come a time when a bird keeper must turn to become a pest control specialist hahaha! Ample verbal and mental warnings (projecting a horrifying end to the predators should they dare come near) have been given but to no avail. Well, its a dirty job, but someone has to do it ;)
Especially after 3 birds has been eaten by them......

This is the first victim. Released 11km away from my place.

Forgot to take a photo of the 2nd victim...... aiyah! must remember, just in case it returns, the next punishment should be more severe.

The 3rd victim. Released near my daughter's school:

Now, if the stories of cats travelling hundreds of miles to reach home is anything to believe in, then the 10 over km is chicken feed for the felines. Hoping instead that since they are stary cats, their number one priority is food and shelter, releasing them in places with ample of these amenities may take their mind away from finding their way back to my neighbourhood.

Decisions are divided with as many people saying that poisoning them is the best method and I won't be transferring my problems to another neighbourhood. And as many who thinks that trapping and releasing is a more humane approach. Then again, seeing how humans are ruining the world, I actually do not care much for "humane" standards. So, I set my own standard - Plan A (chase and abusive words), Plan B (trap and release), Plan C (muahahaha! - evil laugh that trails off into the darkest night like in the movies), Plan D (you don't want to know)......
