How to kill small animals?
I have a bunch of rabbits living in my back yard. I was wondering whats the best way to kill them. Or if I should kill them at all. I guess I could possibly breed them for food. But skinning them and cutting out the organs seems like alot of trouble. I had a watermelon the size of a basketball in my yard and the rabbits ate it. I can't grow any other fruits or vegetables as long as their there. So any ideas?
ok, there are a couple things you can do, personaly i see it as a great opertunity to practice your MA Weopon skills, take your Samurai Sword out there and start hacking , or you can use rat posening and put it out there next to some food that they would eat.
Let them have your backyard.
Invite women over to see them. Sounds like a great hook.
Poison is a very efficient option. If you have a dog or a cat you may not want to use it, however. You could also try trapping them, but that takes time, and it is kind of hit or miss.
It would probably be easiest and most humane to just put a fence around your garden, preventing the rabbits from coming in. I would do this because chances are, if you kill all of the rabbits, some more rabbits will show up sooner or later.

What type of Rabbits? Getting a cat might be an option. If there is a predator around the rabbits will probably move.
Whatever you do, watch out for their deadly Wing Chun chain kicks. :viking:
Serisously, I'd put an ad in the local paper to sell them, or I'd offer them to a local wildlife hostel.

A rabbit would burrow below the fence... unless the fence goes about 1mt deep. That's how deep these suckers can dig.

On a wooden platform set a box slightly open with some bunny edible **** in it to bait the future lunch... err... bunny. The box can be kept open with a stick attached to a string that you can pull (if you can see the bunnies muching in your garden, you can use a string for this).
Or you can set the string as a triangular base where the string ends are tied to the box and the vertix on the stick holding the box together. If the bunny gets inside and trips the string, the box will close on top of him.
It's not 100% guaranteed, but it works. I used these things to trap bunnies when I was a teen (and when I had a LOOOOT of time for being a moron waiting for a bunny to get in the trap.)
Once you get the bunny you can kill it by holding it from the rear legs, swing it around and hit his head to the ground :dead:

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
