LOL sounds fun. So far I've tried pepper spray and a shock wire/fence charger which were both entertaining. But shooting them is a lot easier. I give pets a fighting chance unless they bother the kids or the dogs. The first 2 times I use a pellet gun and don't pump it up all the way. If they haven't figured it out by the 2nd time, they die on the 3rd.

Even in the carport propped up against the wall big dogs have managed to knock it over. Most of my problems happened before we got the big cans here though. I used to use an old fashioned metal can with lid.

Get another can to avoid overflow. Many cans have locking lids like this. Seriously, it isn't difficult to keep animals out of a garbage can. http://www.rubbermaid.com/Category/Pages/ProductDetail.aspx?SubcatId=OutdoorTrashCans&Prod_ ID=RP091453

No way. I pay money for a whole extra pickup for every extra can. Not happening. And I can only use the cans the garbage company provides and it doesn't have a locking lid. A pellet gun works great and a bullet to the head works even better.

Pick up the next black rubber tie strap you pass on the road and put it on the can (you know you have seen one this week).

Mousetraps would be more fun though. You could probably get the kids to take the can out and set the traps.

edit* I just LOL'd at the thought of some old hound getting his sack caught by a mouse trap when trying to "mark" your trash can.

The most fun I have is with the pellet gun. (No body to bury.) Tie strapping my can would result in it not being picked up. The law is in my favor here and will be as long as we continue to have fatalities involving roaming animals. And I intend to take full advantage of it for as long as it stays like this.

DeltaF I'm with you 100%
The whole problem is the pet owners. Too bad they didn't try to get in your garbage!

WHAT!!! Not here in a 95% rural state. We shoot all animals that show up where they are not wanted. That is the way it should be. Dogs, cats, hogs, birds you name it. The only animal safe here is a hound with an electronic caller of some kind. If it is chasing a deer it is shot too. People who don't agree with that are fruit cake city people in my book. KEEP YOUR ANIMALS AT HOME OR THEY WILL DIE.

Same rule in TN. The strays run deer, and eat your chickens & geese.

Well, it looks like "pets is pets and all else is game". I've been on both sides and I have to say (rag on me all you want, I can take it), if you own "pets" keep them close.
If your pet is my in my yard it is a pest.
I love animals but yours are not my responsibility. You made the choice to care for it. You need to take care of them.
Your tiny turd hound nipping at my ankle or your 110lb. husky leaving muffins in my yard do not endear me to you or your pet.
