Actually you could use ferrets. Or polecats, or mink, or pine martens - any

 Unless we're talking about those South American Piranha Gerbils,
which can strip a cow down to a skeleton in seconds. Those are fine.
 Not to be confused with Vampire Gerbils, which despite their ability to
fly and their menacing, glow-in-the-dark eyes, are in fact vegetarian. They
swoop down under cover of darkness and use their hypnotic powers to
paralyse their prey which they then suck the life from.
 It would of course be downright irresponsible for someone to try and
cross the Piranha and Vampire Gerbils, thereby creating an unholy swarm of
furry airborne meatlocusts that could depopulate Redditch overnight. So
that's definitely not what I'm doing in my basement at night, oh no.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that shows you tried.
