My yard is absolutely over-run by blackbirds. They have driven out all of the other birds and wild-life from my yard, and they are eating absolutely everything that I put out for the other animals. I was wondering if it would be sinful to shoot them with a BB or pellet gun. I’m guessing that has the potential to kill them? And obviously I am not using the animal as sustenance.
Would it be sinful to kill the blackbirds with a pellet gun?
