Burrowing owls.

Have a bunch of them messing up my 3 acres in Hialeah. What kind of slug should I use? Or should I bait the holes with gulp shrimp and reel them in? are they any good wrapped in bacon. I'll provide the beer for whoever wants to help and the chiripiorca too.

    The Florida burrowing owl is classified as a "species of special concern" by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. This means burrows, owls, and their eggs are protected from harassment and/or disturbance by state law. Burrowing owls are also protected by the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

    Guess that means euthanize them in a human way.

    Gut load a feeder rat with poison pellets and drop it in the burrow

    The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
