"It sounds like its an aphrodisiac."
If youre going to cure it mating,
Do it without waiting
a 12 gauge shotguns the best
You can send it north east south and west.
No more sexed up pest.

1. Good quality mince & mix in mashed snail pellets
2. Good mince so they enjoy their last meal
3. Not the pet safe pellets
4. Make sure no other animal can get it
5. Put out at night to cure mating

Why ask for permission. Its the worst bit of rhyme I've made in my time.
I cant give it away. So steal it if you must.

My Dad used to tell a great story about when he was plagued with cats. he
was an amateur radio enthusiast and in those days radios were built with
Vacuum tubes and valves which ran off incredibly high voltage and reasonable
amperage, so the trick was a sheet of wire mesh with a bowl of milk in the
middle - one wire from the power supply on the wire one in the milk. Cat
completes the circuit , shoots six feet in the air, hair standing on end and
blue flames coming out its ears - comes down stiff as a board. Claims he got
6 in one night, but by the time the 4th one approached, his mate was
hysterical with laughter and missed the last 3.

Gee and I have an old Kreisler valve job sitting in the laundry (still works
radio that is) only 35 years old. Damn feral got into my blood & bone the
other night but have not been able to get any mince I would eat so it lives
a bit longer.

Having a small pond and a small fish population, eg 5 goldfish we
noticed them disappearing at nights.
Suspecting foul play, we rigged up an electronic low voltage
transformer, with a ignition coil and wired it around the pond.
Testing it personally it seemed that it worked. It didnt seem to kill
humans, but gave them a shock. (Some unkind people would say I tested it
on an animal doing this) At around two oclock, a dog completed the
circuit. The loud yelping as it ran for cover woke the whole court and
was the talk for days. The neighborhood kids didnt come round for some
time either. As the current was measured in microamps it was safe
enough. So be sure to know what youre doing before setting things up for
possums. Theyre not likely to be standing in a pool of water like this
dumb dog was.
The voltage on an old valve radio can be from 200 volts to over 380
volts from memory so isnt the safest, as current would also be
excessive. Do not use it.
Its current is measured to some 200 Milliamps.
If youre not sure, use a transistor radio (grin)

This is too much!! now I'm laughing hysterically and wishing I had a
transister radio!! ROFLMHO!!

I've heard stories about ignition coils in the past and have seen first
hand the reaction of goats to an electric fence.

Don't want to lose my goldfish once I put them in the fishpond....won't
make me very happy at all!!

Well all I can say is that you are living dangerously if you don't tell
your 'missus'!! She'll have your g*ts for garters!! ROFLMHO!!

Good luck with the target though......mmm, maybe I should hire you to

My Dad used to tell a great story about when he was plagued with
cats. he was an amateur radio enthusiast and in those days
radios were built with Vacuum tubes and valves which ran off
incredibly high voltage and reasonable amperage, so the trick
was a sheet of wire mesh with a bowl of milk in the middle - one
wire from the power supply on the wire one in the milk. Cat
completes the circuit , shoots six feet in the air, hair
standing on end and blue flames coming out its ears - comes down
stiff as a board. Claims he got 6 in one night, but by the time
the 4th one approached, his mate was hysterical with laughter
and missed the last 3.


Gee and I have an old Kreisler valve job sitting in the laundry
(still works radio that is) only 35 years old. Damn feral got
into my blood & bone the other night but have not been able to
get any mince I would eat so it lives a bit longer.

Anyway, that reminds me we have white cat roaming around our place at
the moment. Its going to get zapped.
Know just the bloke to do it.....
Now people, I wont electrocute any innocents. Only the missus roams
around the back yard and "the TARGET" so we should be fairly safe "if"
I tell her....
I "may" forget to.....Depends on whats for tea tonight.

spontaneous evacuation.

This is too much!! now I'm laughing hysterically and wishing I
had a transister radio!! ROFLMHO!!

I've heard stories about ignition coils in the past and have seen
first hand the reaction of goats to an electric fence.

Don't want to lose my goldfish once I put them in the
fishpond....won't make me very happy at all!!

Having a small pond and a small fish population, eg 5 goldfish we
noticed them disappearing at nights.
Suspecting foul play, we rigged up an electronic low voltage
transformer, with a ignition coil and wired it around the pond.
Testing it personally it seemed that it worked. It didnt seem to
kill humans, but gave them a shock. (Some unkind people would say
I tested it on an animal doing this) At around two oclock, a dog
completed the circuit. The loud yelping as it ran for cover woke
the whole court and was the talk for days. The neighborhood kids
didnt come round for some time either. As the current was
measured in microamps it was safe enough. So be sure to know what
youre doing before setting things up for possums. Theyre not
likely to be standing in a pool of water like this dumb dog was.
The voltage on an old valve radio can be from 200 volts to over
380 volts from memory so isnt the safest, as current would also
be excessive. Do not use it.
Its current is measured to some 200 Milliamps.
If youre not sure, use a transistor radio (grin)
