"Minecraft" is a fully customisable three-dimensional game where you can craft your own buildings and fend off enemies in the nighttime. You will also end up with nosy stray animals on your property. These animals can have some value, but they can also barge into your home and refuse to leave. There are some ways to get rid of them, and not all of them involve violence.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Left-click the animal while holding nothing to push it. Some animals take this as a sign to run away. Others may need additional pushes before they leave.

  2. 2

    Hold down the left-mouse button while holding any kind of tool. The animal will be hit with the tool. Most will flee, but some will die.

  3. 3

    Build a tall fence around your property to discourage future visitors. Build an actual fence, or surround your home with a wall two blocks high.

Tips and warnings

  • If you can tolerate the animals, wait and see if they will leave on their own accord. Though they tend to linger, most do eventually find other places to go.
