“It makes me very uncomfortable that he is shooting a gun in his backyard and I don’t know what to do.”

“Dear PoPville,

I have a neighbor question predicament. Last week, I saw my neighbor in his back yard (row house, tall fences – I was inside my house) with a handgun in his hand; then, he started shooting towards the ground 6-10 times. Turns out he was shooting a rat that was caught in a trap.

Another day, I was awoken by the same sound. It makes me very uncomfortable that he is shooting a gun in his backyard and I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to call the cops on him – technically, he is not hurting anyone? And I wouldn’t want the cops to hurt him. But I also don’t feel safe in my backyard now or safe letting my dog out. Any advice?”
