    self-defense is the only justifiable other option. but as the op stated that these guys are doing it "for fun", & i doubt that they are consuming what they kill, what they're doing is not justified.

    if they told him that and its not just his opinion, then you are right, but varmint control is another reason, protecting your pets (racoons/foxes) is another.

    Doug did not say he supported it or that he was participating either. He simply asked for our opinions. Maybe you should read what was posted.

    not really other than to giving yourself the false sense of being a bad azz. or you could be ****ed up and enjoy the idea of having lethal power over a "lesser" being.

    i don't mind gulls at all, i actually sometimes enjoy having them as company when i surf alone. that, and their calls are kind of relaxing (that's probably just me though).

    if you have rats in your basement what do you do? I shoot or poison them. there is no particular enjoyment in it but its more a chore that needs to be done. Same with a rabid animal. I grew up in farm country so maybe that's why I look at it differently.

    Yeah, they are most likely doing it for jollies, but I look at gulls a nuisance animals and would probably thin them out a bit if they got a little too over-populated near my place.
