    Hi all, I hope you'll be able to answer a question. Another forum was against free speech and refused to answer my questions and they banned me. Maybe I misworded something, but those were legitimate questions, and I wish to be civil. I will only be asking one of them here:

    If there is a person who loves wildlife and considers their property to be a wildlife habitat, but they have a neighbor who shoots nuisance wildlife, how can the two neighbors resolve their differences?

    Really not enough info to offer a solution. Types of wildlife, amount of space involved, encroachment on private property, status of type of wildlife and hunting/protection rules, etc. need to be identified.

    Also relevant state or local laws need to be brought in.

    What if the wildlife in question was native Abert's squirrels in the state of Arizona, for example?

    If you are feeding the nuisance animals and he is shooting the nuisance animals..... it'll all fix itself eventually.
    Either the nuisance animals will learn to stay off the neighbor's property, or you won't have to feed them anymore.

    This isn't actually something that was going on; it is hypothetical because it's for a fictional story I'm writing. Thank you for the insight!

    A single person cannot declare their property a wildlife habitat, but can declare it "no hunting", properly posted on his/her land per relevant state law. However, the restriction wouldn't extend one millimeter beyond his property line. If the animal in question is not protected and the neighbor who is doing what he/she considers pest eradication is within the law, there is nothing that can be legaly done, at least in my home state. Best is to realize that MadDuner's solution is the most likely.
