Howdy! If you plan on relocating the animal, make sure you take it many miles away or it will be back in a few days. Nuisance squirrels that are live trapped have to be taken at least 5 miles, as the crow flies, away. They will come back if you take them less than 5 miles away. Best of luck!

That's the way to do it. I tried hauling cats to barns and lettin'em go.
Some stayed, some came back to crap in my yard, and pee in my garage.

Now, its 22, or shotgun. But no do overs.

use conibears and you won't need to use up ammo

Cats make noise when you squeeze'em.
The sit quietly and wait when you feed'm a small cheap can of cat food.
