    I live in the state of California and for the past 6 months my neighborhood has been seeing TONS of cats around. 6 months ago it was 3 cats now it's about8-10. They don't belong to anybody as they just hang out at this foreclosed house opposite side of my backyard. They always get into my garbage and tearwholes in the bags and cause big messes. If one is in my back yard, am I allowed to shoot it with a paintball gun? [​IMG]

    Dude just scare it away by stomping your feet or put up 2 liter bottles full of water and they will stay away. I hate cats but thats no reason to shoot them.

    "Animal cruelty is a B__ch."

    Just call animal control and they'll come to get it.

    You've got to have serious issues if you want to hurt a defenseless animal.

    animal control doesn't do !**+. they'll tell you to rent some traps and they'll come pick them up. traps are like 29 a pop
