You shot an opossum with what!?

Posted by   + Show Post
My husband just came in to tell me he went out to take the trash to the curb and there was an opossum on the front porch squared off with the cat, so instead of trying to scare it off and shooing the cat inside what does he do?
He runs to the garage and gets his bow and arrows from when he was a kid (it's like a cheep compound bow and crooked arrows he used to shoot into hay in his back yard) and shoots the thing from like 3 feet away! And now it's dead in my trashcan yay!
I'm glad he kept my cat from getting hurt and everything but geeze could you get anymore redneck. We live in fricken southern ca!!

How? It does not hurt them. They run off and come back for more. We have never injured one.

Are you joking? Have you been shot by an air soft gun? Now imagine being a hundredth of your size and being hit by one, yes, it is hurting them.

We thought that too so we didn't put out our very full can and the trash guy came today!! Lol.


Quoting LCWAmommy:

Oh trash doesn't come till tomorrow yay! Hopefully it won't smell too bad



Quoting nocalmegan:

Yup our pitties kill them all the time and leave them on the door step for us. So gross. I make dh go out there and bag it up and throw it on the curb. Then they take their sweet ass time coming to pick it up and the whole street smells like ass :/






Quoting LCWAmommy:

Yeah animal control sucks I found a dead cat in my neighbors yard and they would not come pick it up untill I put it in a bag on the curb gross! But I couldn't leave the poor thing laying in their yard all day!







Quoting nocalmegan:

Thats funny. were in SoCal too. My neighbor just found one in her trash. It's been there for 3 days now. Shes leaving it for the trash guy to dump it. Animal control told he they won't get it unless it's bagged on the curb.

Yeah that shit hurts. I've had big bruises and broken skin from those and I'm a person. Can't imagine being a tiny squirrel. If you're going to shoot it at least kill it :( or just don't shoot it!

When I lived at the beach we had a stray cat we fed on our porch, well late at night I walked out trying to pet it saying here kitty kitty. All it did was hiss at me. I walked inside telling my hubby (then bf) that she was just hissing at me. He walked outside and cut on the porch light. It wasnt the kitty. It was an opossum. Stupid me :( its still a joke and it was 10 yrs ago.

No it's not. Shooting it at them from over a hundred feet does not cause pain. My stepson shot me from the same distance and it did not even sting. One squirrel has even quit running. He will just look at us. No squeaks or cries of pain. If it hurt we would not do it. Better than the people down the street that just use a .22.

Shot at close range sure it hurts like hell. But hundred feet doesnt.
