    Now those of you who read my last post about the dog running of with my squirrel incident will know i don't have much luck with land owners pets!!!

    just recently i did a favour for a local farmer who in return gave me permission to shoot pidgeons on his land!:) Now on my first trip there i was walking around trying to work out all the good ambush points when a nice plump wood pidgeon flew over and landed on the corner of a barn. Within seconds it was in my cross hairs with a .22 pellet hurtling towards it. what happend was was unbelivable. the pidgeon never even made it to the ground when the farmers cat appeared out of nowhere and grabbed the pidgeon and proceeded to walk of with it!!!!:eek: so i put my rifle down and started trying to get the pidgeon back which was going to be my dinner. this was easier said than done, it didn't want to let go at all. i eventually managed to get hold of the cat in one hand and the pidgeon in the other, the where feathers going every were! the farmer eventually came over who was in stitches as he'd watch the whole thing. all he said was "the cat really likes pidgeon". i did manage to get it back, it was very tasty!!!:)

    All for one pigeon?
    Should have let the cat have it and he would have been off with his roast and then you could have carried on unhindered.
    It probably was a funny sight but if that had been a domestic cat or you had injured it he may have looked differently about it plus i am surprised the pussy never bit you.Pussy's can be quite vicious when they get their back up:rolleyes:
    Take care what you are doing mate:D

    I shot a Magpie the other day at the bottom of my garden, next doors cat had it before it hit the ground, I was quite pleased really as it saved me from having to pick it up and throw it away as I had no intention of eating it.
