** Clearly, he must've tried. It just didn't work, obviously. As stated, trying to capture the bird alive and uninjured is probably much more difficult than just killing it, since it's too fast to capture easily ''without'' injuring it in some capacity.

** From what we see in the film, he seemed to leave his dogs to do most of the work, and while they're certainly possess more dexterity than the average dog, they're still not the sharpest knives in the drawer. Couple this with how fast Kevin is, how strong her legs probably are, how her species might be endangered, and the fact that she lives in a deadly labyrinth that's impossible to navigate...and with Muntz seemingly going a little too far of the deep end over the years, and it's plausible that he never had the chance to catch her. (Especially since his claim to the world was that he would bring the bird back ''alive'', which limits severely the means his dogs can use to catch her very easily.)

** I'm guessing nobody saw him do it, so they didn't have enough evidence to press charges. Prune juice isn't always unique to a specific jug like fingerprints or DNA, and it's entirely possible for a defense attorney to reasonably argue that a troublemaking kid was pulling what he thought was an innocent prank on the construction boss.

* How could Muntz have been out to catch one specimen of one species of bird and never have come close to catching it for '''70 YEARS?!'''

*** Personally I always felt that the collars just interpret the dog's body language, obviously to a cartoony extreme, but still more credible for me than mechanical telepathy with 40s technology.

*** Even if they were not poor and just middle class a trip to South America can be very expensive, particularly to an unexplored zone, in any case Carl did bought tickets to South America at some point as shown in the montage, but Ellie get sick before they can go.

*** Muntz didn't jump, he was pulled out of the window while trying to grab Russel, but yes still it wasn't Carl's fault.

*** Technically non of the dogs talks, the special collars whether interpret their body languages and translate it into human words (my personal theory) or read their brainwaves.
