I hesitate to admit this because there are some members here who are 
appalled at the idea of killing any creature. Nevertheless, those of us 
who live amongst the wildlife, though respecting and revering all of 
God's creation, realize that there are times that our needs and wants 
take precedence over certain destructive pests. This morning, I 
dispatched my SEVENTH armadillo this growing season. Four were shot 
directly during periodic "night patrols" with my .22. The other three 
were trapped in a live trap, then summarily executed.

Living way out in the middle of many hundreds of acres of forest, I 
expect to be surrounded by wildlife, and for the most part we peacefully 
co-exist and my life is immesurably richer because of their presence. 
Only very occasionally over the last 25 years have I had to kill 
animals. The occasional possum or coon in the chicken house has had to 
die. I have suffered the depradations of many, many deer in recent years 
and only one has paid the ultimate price for their raiding of my 
plantings. But these armadillos are a plague! At the risk of sounding 
heartless, I say... kill 'em all!!!
