I think this bird is inflicting enough pain on himself. And as much as I'm not oppsosed to hunting I do not think I could do it to any animal myself. Plus there are no weapons of any kind in this house. Just my mother and I and neither interested in a sport that woud involve a daisy red rider. I think he went to bed he will thwacking at the window in the morning. I must discuss appropriate thwacking hours with him.
