it will take awhile because I don't know kanji well, especially obscure bullshit compound kanji like "extendable pruning shears"
^ Perhaps he's envisioning a "pole pruner."
probably, I dont' know what those things are called. Is there even an official term? It's lit "high branch cutting shears"
Kaneh, I love you (in a completely Platonic sort of way).
And yes, I think they're just long pruning shears, as the sort you'd use to trim tree branches are long and heavy as hell and therefore wouldn't be very maneuverable in a narrow nest space. You'd be more likely to mash the yukkuri parent to pieces than get the branch off without waking it.
^As much as I approve of senseless violence towards reimus and marisas, I doubt that this anon killed the mother with pruning shears. Stupid anko-brain was probably asleep and didn't even notice that anon stole her babies.Until it was too late, of course.
If the place is big enough for a yukkuri to fit through, its big enough for a pair of pruning shears to go through. As much as I'd like to think the mother got a pair of shears through the eyes, he probably just cut it off. It causes the mother more anguish that way to see the kids missing in the morning.
It's funny because he casually stole someone's kids.
