Perplexing...I would feel guilt for shooting and killing the first 2 turtles, but then I'd become numb to it, and I'm forge onward.

If I choose to "trap them," I know afterwards if I stood above a cage/basket, or simply had them in a pile in front of me on the ground, and I simply "shot them point blank," I KNOW the guilt would kill me!

If I trap them, I know I'd give myself an extra chore of "driving" them to a stream or creek and letting them go.

I know, I know, it's silly.

1. air rifle or .22, shoot them one by one whenever I get the chance
2. catch/trap them, then shoot them right in front of me and dump the bodies in the trash
3. catch/trap them, then drive them to a creek to set them free
4. don't do anything and hope Old John will forget about it and just let me fish


Well this is a fairly philosophical question that you're facing here Joe.

All of these options say varying things about your character, your humanity, your compassion, and your drive to fish private ponds.

A question truly fitted for Socrates or Hume, even Descartes. Good luck.

I wonder if simply shooting as many as I can would help me with my "anger problem" I bragged about having?

I know a couple members want to get me fired from my educator position because I should not be around or influencing the "innocent."

Ha, that's funny, the "innocent."
