Is there a positive way I can deter my neighbors kid from shooting wild life with a pellet gun?

Where I live there is some wildlife. We recently had the fires here and nature has been slowly returning. I could recently see on a large burnt tree there were several pairs of mourning doves in the branches and ground squirrels all around the ground. I a

Answers:

Doves are considers "game" birds in most states and there is a season. Depending on where you live, squirrels may or may not be a controlled game species. Many non-migratory, non-game birds are not protected, depending on the particular species and state. I would find out the laws and first let the kids know they are shooting at an illegal species. If they continue, I would tell the parents. If that doesn't work then call fish and game.

You might encourage the kids to help you in building a dove cote. If they are encourage to take part in creating a habitat for the birds, their focus will be directed in a positive way. At the same time, you might help by providing safe targets for their shooting. Believe it or not, most game preservation efforts are undertaken by hunters.

You should end this problem now by minding your own bloody business.

Take the advice others have given you and report them. But before you do film them in the act and show that to the wildlife officers at their office. You will just waste your time trying to stop them yourself, let the law take care of it. I am a long time hunter who has great disdain for people who shoot anything they see. Now if its rats, mice etc I see no problrm as long as they are safe and are not shooting safely.

Dude, just call animal control. Let them put the fear of the Lord in the minds and butts of these kids. Its just that easy.

The fact that a kid is shooting any animal for pleasure is a sign of mental illness and possible psychopathy. I would seek help for that child and make sure he isn't the next mass shooter or something. I know kids like playing with guns, and like killing things in video games with guns, so did I, but when it comes and came to real life and a life is involved even if it's like a bunny or a bird, it is a life and that life should be valued and not be something to gain pleasure from ending that life at any age. One time I accidentally shot a field mouse behind a hay target in my backyard. I felt so bad. If they really are shooting at animals I would talk to their parents and if that does not work I would file a complaint and have action taken against them or something.

They seem like nice people except, of course, for killing small animals. I'm sure Charlie Manson's neighbors thought his grandmother/grandfather/mother were "nice people" except for killing small animals.

I would ask the Police about the specific gun laws in your area.

I would speak to the parents.

Sure...get him a 22 or a shotgun. Pellet guns can put your eye out.

break his fingers, whoop his butt, break the gun, report him & his parents to the cops for NOT keeping their kid under control & being a public nuisance, even to child services as well also animal wildlife protection, ASPCA, the humane society, as it IS cruelty to animals.
