You can't argue with this logic.

The Humane Society says the best solution is to encourage people to trap feral cats to be brought in and be neutered, then released, thus keeping the overall cat population down

Any eagal that runs into a giant windmill should have his flying license revoked.

Well, to be fair, anyone who spells "eagle" like you just did should have their keyboard revoked too... (I kid)

The cats will get theirs. People around here are quite comfortable releasing their little killing machines on the neighborhood, but it has attracted red foxes to the area. We've seen an uptick in "Have You Seen..." signs tacked to telephone poles, and last summer we actually saw our neighbor's cat, a prolific baby rabbit killer, being carried off by a fox. Nature adjusts.

I can argue with that "logic" because it's stupid and cruel. Feral cats don't have an easy life and releasing them is wrong.

If they're euthanized, their suffering and reprodution both end.


Now what should we do to stop the destruction of bird habitat by HUMANS.....see, birds need a place to live...that's a big factor in survival...

Someone should sue the cats for all the damage they are doing.

The birds in question are suffering because of cats,not loss of habitat.

I will just shoot any cats I see on our land,same goes for dogs.

People who cannot control their animals are the real issue.

So you don't think birds need a place to live, breed, migrate to....don't know much about nature (????????)
