My county down south here allows discharging a gun as I am far enough from another home. I had caught a few squirrels who have been wrecking havoc in my attic for almost 6 months and drove them 15 miles away. Then I was told when I caught a racoon during the day that I did not have a trapping license that they don't issue for anything and that I cannot transport ANY animal because if it is sick I could spread the disease. Okay, so in the garbage it has to go. That's legal, leaving them alive and transporting them is not. Go figure.
My neighbor would go insane if she saw me killing that which I have found has chewed 13 spots in attic electrical wire - that I can see. It came down to No More Mr. Nice Guy when I saw that.
I prefer to put the squirrel in the garbage but know in 3 days it will reek. He's under a can outside in the shade but it's 95+ here. I put him in a FedEx bag yesterday after getting him. What can I add to the bag to stop/slow the decay? Do I need an air tight bag?
Thanks in advance
