What can I do about owls that are messing up and depredating on my property?

Owls are protected under both state and federal law and may not be legally killed. Other, preventive, measures are in order to avoid problems. The closing of any access holes in home attics or other buildings to prevent nesting and the installation of mesh or netting over pens to prevent depredation on chickens should prove successful.
