Gareth Morgan from stuff.co.nz article
Okay, this makes me crazy – reading this kind of stuff. There are nuts everywhere you turn these days. This came to my attention and I simply had to share. I think all you cat lovers will find this interesting. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a place on this man’s website/blog to comment, or I would have left him an earful.
This is a bit of a follow-up on my last post, I suppose, since it was about cats hunting birds in my neighborhood. As I stated I do wish the owners would keep them indoors because they have an internal instinct to hunt. However, along with this, keeping them indoors is also for their own safety. But under no circumstances should anyone call for the eradication of cats. To entertain such a thought is total madness.
In my opinion, Gareth Morgan is taking things too far. He is not even opposed to euthanizing your cat to get rid of it. Of course, he is also suggesting that owners not replace their cats once they die, etc. I can’t believe he really thinks he will eradicate all cats off the country of New Zealand. Obviously, he is delusional. I would think bigger birds and other animals prey on the eggs of smaller birds, etc. and are just as much to blame for a waning bird population. After all nature has way of keeping everything in check.
Anyway, I’ll let you read the articles here if you’re interested.
