so i've got two of these little fuckers in the trees over my backyard. they're very aggressive and swoop whenever they get the chance. and their beaks fucking hurt. they've even gone for next door's wife while she was carrying her baby.

what's a good idea for getting rid of them? i'm in an urban environment, so a .22 isn't the answer. and in australia you need a firearms permit to get an air rifle, which i don't have.

ideas?

Get a cat.

Then it's like 'nature v nature' so there's no guilt...but if the cat gets out of hand buy a Dog.

and then get a goat to kill the dog, and a cow to kill the goat, and a horse to kill the cow, and then so on? i'm going to have a lot of animal corpses in my backyard at this rate.

that's a decent idea actually. only problem is that they swoop when you're not looking, and they do it so silently you don't even realise until they're about 10 centimetres away from you.

Pellet gun, or if you are too humane to be a vicious killer then feed em some bird food mixed with that drano foam powder, game - set - match!

No you won't because you can isolate and starve the dog to death.

Feed them poisoned bird seed.

i was thinking this...but i'd feel bad. i'd rather something that does the job quickly and painlessly. like shooting them out of the tree with a 12 guage and bashing their heads in with my maglite.

charming, i know

Sniper pellet gun.

It probably won't kill them, but they may just learn their lesson eventually.

Lemme give you some advice, son. No general ever won a war with that pussy ass "oh but I don't want it to hurt" shit.

The gloves are off, now do you want these birds dead or not?

is there no animal control or animal resque around that will do something with them.

not really, unfortunately. they'll just recommend ways to co-exist with them.

but i'm a red-blooded human, i can't possibly co-exist with any form of nature.

he'd probably end up taking out a lot of other birds too though, which isn't a good idea.

call animal control or something and see if they have any ideas

We had some birds like that. We just knocked the nest down and they left. They did come back the next year though, or the same type of bird anyway and build a nest in the same place. I guess you could give it a try and see what happens. Or you could try and catch them and let them go somwere far away if you didn't want to hurt them.
