I once had a dog that liked to dig in the trash when I wasn't around. I rehabilitated him by putting a couple mouse traps on top of the trash.

In another case, when I was a kid the neighbor's dog used to come over at night and chew on our rabbits' feet through the cage. Dad rehabilitated him with a load of 7-1/2 birdshot in his hindquarters -- the dog was always polite after that and never came over without permission.
Yet somehow I think Illinois would probably have some sort of PETA-approved, 12-step program to convince rogue wildlife to leave people alone.
