Yea i have heard of this. If the animal is destroying your property then it is legal to shoot it.

If it is legal, it ain't poaching.

Yes in many states you are allowed to take nuisance animals, you just cant' utilize meat or fur. At least this is my understanding.

Check with the DFW in your state. Here in Mass you can kill anything causing damage to your land and property with the exception being deer. There is a reporting process which requires you to inform the state what you have killed. The state reserves the right to collect the remains of the animal of course.

What do you mean I can't utilize the meat or fur? All this time I've been catching rats and mice and making one helluva good soup out of them. Oh well!...............Just Kidding
