Legal Cat Cruelty – Find Woodsman

The words ‘legal’ and ‘cruelty’ should never go together in one sentence. But they do in many places on the planet. One reason will be because there are no laws to protect the cat against human abuse. The classic example is China. China is a country that will do anything to get ahead and they do not give a damn what other people think. Incidentally we feed that attitude by allowing them to manufacture the world’s goods as we are addicted to consumerism in the West. In China they farm tigers for tiger parts and half kill domestic and feral cats before killing them for fur and food (cat meat).

Enough of China. Neighboring countries such Vietnam are similarly cruel in their general attitude towards the cat. I say ‘generally’. There are people in these countries who are protective of the cat and good caretakers but if the law allows cat cruelty then the people of that country allow it. Although I also recognise that it is a big challenge to change dictatorships.

Another reason why cruelty is in effect legalised is because of a lack of enforcement. Mexico is a classic example. They have decent animal welfare laws as a shop window of respectability.  In reality there is widespread animal abuse and wild animal smuggling. This is all due to a lack of enforcement.

In Britain there are good animal welfare laws and they are enforced (sort of). The hard part in enforcing animal welfare laws against cat cruelty is finding the perpetrators. It is very easy to kill a cat secretly and get away with it (e.g. mothballs). The following are factors that allow perpetrators of cat cruelty to get away with it even in countries were there are decent animal welfare laws and enforcement:

  • Lack of real commitment from police to prosecute animal cruelty. Animals are third class citizens.
  • A domestic cat might be a stray. He has no ‘owner’. There is no one to look after his welfare and interests.
  • A lack of relations and networks. Humans are connected to other humans and those connections are easy to trace. Often crimes against the person are committed by people who know each other. A domestic cat has no human relatives other than the ‘owner’.
  • A cat has no voice. They can’t speak the language.
  • The final reason is that there is a culture that has developed that overrides the strict law and makes the law passive and almost obsolete. If an act is illegal under the law but the perpetrator is rarely punished the de facto position is that illegality becomes legal.

The last factor is present in parts of the United States of America in my humble opinion. And, please, I don’t want people saying I have no right to criticise other countries. This is one planet and we are all on it.

We don’t know but as a guess, I’d say that that hundreds of thousands of feral, stray and domestic cats are shot by Americans with .22 rifles and other guns every year. People do this for fun or to stop the cat wandering onto their land or because they hate cats. It could be any reason. One of these people calls himself “Woodsman“. Woodsman has aliases, unsurprisingly. One of his internet names is: Reality Czech. Reality Czech made this comment:

It wasn’t until I STOPPED arguing and did what needed to be done, SHOOT ALL CATS, that my land, all the wildlife, and my life itself started to return to normal. I no longer have to go out twice a day on cat-patrol to shoot more cats nor waste more time and energy burying them to protect wildlife from the diseases they carry. You can see the full comment thread on this page.

Another of his names is Nature Advocate. He writes this in a comment:

EVERY cat; kitten to adult, male & female, collared or not, stray or feral; that touches paw to my land gets instantly sterilized with a .22. Problem solved 100%. This is the post.

Others prefer to poison the cat and they get away with it too.

These ‘shooters’ are often so arrogantly confident in their distorted behavior that they brag about it online. They declare their hatred for the cat and support their perverted behavior through spurious and distorted ‘evidence’ and partial and inaccurate quotes of the law. They are on a mission to save the world from the all conquering cat! They admit to animal cruelty. It is as straightforward as that.

These people are never prosecuted. Sometimes the police chief joins in….

THAT’S when he himself advised that I just shoot every last one of your lousy invasive species cats. Not even HE could reason with people like you. (Woodsman)

Is shooting cats classified as animal cruelty in the USA? Well, yes, in my opinion but like many laws it lacks clarity sometimes. Also in the USA each state has its own animal welfare law, which complicates things. But commonsense dictates that shooting a cat will cause pain even for a short time before death and the willful inflicting of pain on a cat without due cause must be animal cruelty and the animal welfare laws in the USA are advanced laws so must include the above.

Just taking two states at random, Pennsylvania and Colorado. Shooting cats in these states is a crime. See the relevant law: Colorado and Pennsylvania.

Unless someone can correct me, I will presume that shooting cats without reasonable reason or defense under statute (and a cat trespassing on someone’s land is not a good reason), is a crime across all or most of the USA.

When a person such as Woodsman on this website brags and rants about shooting hundreds of cats and others brag about poisoning them on the internet, why aren’t these people traced?

Every computer has a unique address; an IP address. Police can trace people through their IP address. In the UK, the police can trace twitter trollers who make defamatory remarks against another or commit internet harassment of another person. It is an up-and-coming area of the criminal law. Some rioters from the Tottenham riots last year in London were apprehended after they incited riots on the internet. I think it was Facebook.

Woodsman IP address is: He also uses: His email is Why can’t the police find him? Can someone in the USA report his comments and IP address to the police? Is there a specialist department in the USA who are able to investigate? Perhaps in the USA the police don’t deal with animal cruelty. It does not matter. The law needs to be upheld.

His IP address tells me he lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. Using another online tool, that appears to be more accurate, I have discovered that Woodsman lives in Clearwater (Minnesota) in United States. This is near St. Paul. St. Paul is part of the Minneapolis/St.Paul conurbation (sprawl). See the map below. Note: this is a small area of a dozen or so streets. The IP Postal Code (IP Zip Code) is: 55320.

There has got to be a way of tracking him down. Shooting cats is a crime. It is morally indefensible. It should be stopped. The police have a civic duty to stop it.

Legal Cat Cruelty – Find Woodsman — 100 Comments

  1. Yes you are right Michael, we do have the right to criticise other countries, because cats have the right to be defended against cruelty and if so few will do that in their own country then someone from another country has to.
    I notice the lack of shocked comments from the USA when someone like that cat murderer boasts about killing them, why does hardly anyone care?????
    Why do people from other countries have to try to educate the USA about the cruelty of declawing. Why did over 400 people promise to attend the St Louis protest you arranged and then every single one let you down?
    The welfare of animals especially cats, will never improve there if people don’t seriously start doing something to stop the abuse of them.
    Well done Michael for always speaking up for those who can’t speak up for themselves, that is all cats worldwide!

    • Thanks Ruth. I want to expose this idiot and I want him stopped. We owe it cats to protect them because we created them indirectly. We started the domestication of cats.

  2. Hate to be the bearer of bad news. If I am not very much mistaken, and I rarely am, MN is one of a number of states that allow for the legal killing of uncollared cats. They are ‘supposed’ to be feral, but obviously many are peoples pets. Legal or not, if you find out his guys name/address, do let me know.

    • Thanks Christopher. I have this on animal welfare laws in MN:

      MINN. STAT. § 343.20 (2008). Definitions

      Subd. 2. Animal. “Animal” means every living creature except members of the human race.

      MINN. STAT. § 343.21 (2008). Overworking or mistreating animals; penalty

      Subd. 7. Cruelty. No person shall willfully instigate or in any way further any act of cruelty to any animal or animals, or any act tending to produce cruelty to animals.

      I conclude that shooting a cat is cruelty.

      • Then you also conclude that all hunting is animal cruelty. Shoot to maim is animal cruelty! And I AGREE! But SHOOT TO KILL IS PERFECTLY HUMANE.

        If you don’t comprehend the difference, take your argument to the nearest hunting-lodge and watch what happens when they try to educate you. (And judging by how desperate you are for attention from other men, I bet this would involve your fantasies of being raped by them.)

          • Thank you. Well said. Mind you, after a while you get to know Woody, as we call him, and he is a sad idiot but if he kills cats as he says he does, I’d like to do something nasty to him.

            • I think if he has killed as many cats as he boasts he has, there wouldn’t be any cats left around his area.
              It’s all in his sick mind.
              He comes to a cat site thinking to upset us cat lovers, he is pathetic.

      • p.s. You forgot to post some out-of-context laws from Pennsylvania and South Carolina too. You know, the other states’ IPs I’ve just posted under. LOL

  3. …. and even as recent as two years ago, the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife proposed legalizing cat hunting in the Garden State. The board members most enthusiastic about this have left their positions.

  4. (Deleted this part of the comment)

    The law in the USA is that it is perfectly legal to destroy any animal, someone’s pet or not, that is threatening the health, well-being, and safety of yourself, your family, your animals, or even your property. Also true even in most densely populated cities, firearms laws permitting, if not then 700-1200fps air-rifles are commonly used. The only animals exempt from you taking immediate action, legally, are those listed on endangered or threatened species lists, and any bird species under protection of MBTA (the Migratory Bird Treaty Act). Even then variances can be given should there be sufficient problem but this requires further study by authorities. Since cats are listed in the TOP 40 WORST invasive-species of the world in the “Global Invasive Species Database” (, this means they have no protection whatsoever from being shot on sight, they are not on any protected-species list anywhere in the world. Quite the opposite as a matter of fact. And if your area enforces and obeys invasive-species laws — as they should — then it is against the law to NOT destroy any cat on sight, someone’s pet or not. It is your civic and moral responsibility to destroy any invasive-species that is found away from supervised confinement and roaming freely in a non-native habitat.

    Shoot to maim is punishable under the laws that define animal-cruelty (these are the ONLY cases that cat-lovers cite to try to manipulate you and scare you from shooting their cats). But shoot to kill is a perfectly legal way to humanely destroy an animal. The same laws that apply to methods of humanely hunting animals also applies to cats. Unlike cat-lovers’ psychotic beliefs, the reality is that a cat is just another animal. It’s NOT their baby, their child, their offspring. Even if they do view their cats that way, letting them roam free is no less criminally irresponsible than them telling their child to go play in the freeway and then blaming the cars for their child’s death. If they let their cat roam free, NO MATTER HOW IT DIES, that is THEIR fault and they can be charged with all laws that clearly define animal-neglect, animal-abandonment, and animal-endangerment.

    In fact, here’s a publication from a study done by the University of Nebraska on the best ways to HUMANELY deal with a feral-cat problem wherever you live. This documentation INCLUDES the best firearms, ammo, and air-rifles required to HUMANELY destroy cats.

    Besides, what difference does it make if the cat gets shot or ran over by a car, attacked by another cat or animal, drowned, or poisoned by plants animals or chemicals (inexpensive 1-adult-strength generic acetaminophen pain-relievers gaining in popularity, for being so species specific). The result is the same. The cause is the same — the fault of the criminally irresponsible pet-owner that let their invasive-species pet roam free. They’ve already proved that their animal is 100% expendable. You can either destroy their cat for them humanely, or let their lack of care cause it to inevitably die inhumanely. They don’t care one bit how their cat might cruelly suffer to death if they let it roam free. Humanely destroy their cat for them before that can happen.

    • How do you know a cat is “threatening the health, well-being, and safety of yourself, your family, your animals, or even your property”? Remember some of the cats you shoot live with someone. How can it be that they threaten health? You are saying that all domestic cats threaten the health of people. If that was true there would be no domestic cats.

      Also you are referring to federal law. Please quote the law chapter and verse that supports your statement.

      • Oh, but to educate you would require that I post URL’s’ and you are such a blathering and scared idiot that you can’t STAND IT when people get facts and REALITY thrown in their psychotic cat-lovers’ bliss-ninny faces.

      • Michael, thought you might find it interesting that the Woodsman is posting these same comments on a local newspaper blog in Myrtle Beach, SC. Go to Myrtlebeachonline. This will link you to our area newspaper, The Sun News. Look up the story of the cat woman in Conway, SC. This guy is exhibiting serious psychotic behavior.

        • Thanks Johnny. I’ll check it out. I think he is mad. I would love to get him. I would love to see him, even meet him. But if I met him I wouldn’t trust myself to behavior decently. He has many internet alias. He recently posted a comment under the name “toxoplasmosis”! He is totally obsessed with toxoplasmosis. He says he was scratched by a kitten when he was a boy. Perhaps he believes he is mad and that it was caused by the scratch that lead to the toxoplasmosis protozoan living in his brain.

  5. You might also enjoy knowing …

    If you advocate for cats as rodent-control on farms and ranches you’ve already doomed them to being destroyed by drowning or shooting when it becomes a financial liability more than any asset. Ranchers and farmers worldwide are fully aware that cats’ Toxoplasma gondii parasite can cause the very same birth defects (hydrocephaly and microcephaly), still-births, and miscarriages in their livestock and important wildlife as it can in pregnant women. Consequently, this is also how this cats’ brain-parasite gets into your meats and onto your dinner-tables, from herbivores ingesting this cat-parasites’ oocysts in the soils, transferred to the plants and grains that they eat. Not even washing your hands in bleach will destroy this parasites’ oocysts if you have contracted it from your garden or yard that a cat has defecated in.

    This is why any cats are ROUTINELY destroyed around gestating livestock and wildlife-management areas in the most efficient, humane, and least-expensive method available. Common rural practice everywhere. The risk of financial loss from dead livestock and important native wildlife from an invasive-species cat is far too great to do otherwise. This cats’ parasite is now even killing off rare marine-mammals along all coastal regions from run-off containing this cat-parasites’ oocysts.

    The next time you bite into that whole-grain veggie-muffin or McBurger, you need to just envision biting down on a shot-dead or drowned kitten or cat. For that’s precisely how that food supply got to your mouth — whether you want to face up to it or not. It’s not going to change reality no matter how much you twist your mind away from the truth of your world.

    If you want to blame someone for the drowning and shooting of cats, you need to prosecute yourself — every time you eat.

        • Are you saying a cat can trespass? You have never quoted me the law. You can’t do it. You make it up to suit yourself. Quote the statute. Quote me the common law and the precedents, the cases. You can’t do it Woody. You just like shooting cats.

          • Sigh … this is why I always encourage ANYONE with a cat-problem to just shoot their cats. Cat-lovers are so amazingly desperate for attention from anything but their cats that they’ll troll you for the rest of your life for attention by using their cats to get it.

            Here’s just one of many on the book, and this doesn’t even cover the ones so you can protect your own family, animals, and property from them.

            § 11-0529. Cats hunting birds; dogs pursuing deer or killing other wildlife in certain areas.

            1. Any person over the age of twenty-one years possessing a hunting license may, and environmental conservation officers and peace officers,acting pursuant to their special duties, or police officers shall humanely destroy cats at large found hunting or killing any protected wild bird or with a dead bird of any protected species in its possession.

            5. No action for damages shall lie against any authorized person for
            the killing of a cat, dog or coyote as provided in this section.

            And this making _ALL_ TNR ILLEGAL

            e. No person shall release any dog or cat from the custody or control of any pound, shelter, society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, humane society, dog protective association, dog control officer, peace office or any agent thereof, for any purpose except adoption or redemption by its owner.


            5. Subdivision 2e explains that dogs and cats can only be released from shelters or pounds, etc., for the purposes of being adopted or returned to their owners.

            You can’t release any cat that has entered a shelter or vet care! If you abandon it outside you will be fined and convicted under all animal-abandonment, animal-neglect, and animal-endangerment laws.

            • Please quote the statute – which state? Also: “Cats hunting birds”…”shall humanely destroy cats at large found hunting or killing any protected wild bird or with a dead bird of any protected species in its possession”.

              I presume that you have only shot cats with a bird in their mouth! Impossible. And shooting a cat under any circumstances is not humane. Accordingly if that is all you can produce, I conclude you are a criminal. Thanks for the admission.

              I now have two IP addresses at least that are connected to criminal activity.

          • Sigh … why do you keep lying to yourself and all others? Oh wait, I know why, it’s in my list of facts:

            FACT: During all this investigation I have discovered something that is unfaltering without fail. Something that you can bet your very life on and win every last time. That being — IF A TNR CAT-HOARDER IS TALKING THEN THEY ARE LYING. 100% guaranteed!

            You may have two IP addresses, but NEITHER is linked to ANY criminal activity!

            Yep, you ARE dumber than your cats!

            • Woody, why have you stopped discussing the real issues, the law and your activity, and resorted to plain insults? That indicates that you have run out of argument. It indicates that you can’t support your animal cruelty. Which is obvious.

  6. Ooops, the first post awaits your stupid moderation for containing a URL. Here it is again cleaned-up so you don’t have to take 3 days trying to find the right button to display it.

    (the remainder is repeat of the first response..Admin)

  7. Hey! You forgot to post a map for this IP address too! (so much for you lying about keeping anyone’s information safe on your site. Cat-lovers, be afraid, be very afraid. LOL) (I’ll save you some time, It’s for Pittsburgh PA. The other side of the continent.)

    • Thanks Woody. The change implies that you want to avoid detection. This in turn implies you are guilty of cat cruelty. I guess you have a friend in Pittsburgh. He is also guilty of a crime in perverting the course of justice.

      • Not at all! But Google for Loews Hotels Feral Cats Florida

        Then you can see what a living nightmare and hell that people like you create for ANYONE who tries to remove cats from their own property.

        No sane person in their right mind would let any of you sociopaths and psychopaths know where they live. I collect death threats daily. It’s fun! Because I could care less, I can handle myself just fine. But should any of you pathetic a**wipes ever do make good on your empty threats, then you ALL go down. LOL!!!!!!!

          • Now don’t be so amazingly and blatantly stupid. The death-threats are made by psychopaths and sociopaths JUST LIKE YOU!

            Don’t believe me? Google for Congressman Oda Cats Death Threats

            F***heads like you even send death-threats to Congressmen, their families, and fellow lawmakers! Don’t worry though, the FBI already have those people under observation. The FBI has been wanting my list for a year now. But I don’t care to be bothered with that mess. I can take care of myself JUST fine! LOL!!

            • Woody, you have never met me. You can’t call me mad. No one has called me mad before. I feel that your defense is a little rash and unstable. It is sort of desperate. Are you stable, Woody? Are you are bit tense? Do you keep your rifle close by at night? Do you know someone who has made a death threat to a politician? That is the kind of thing you would do. I have never sent a death threat by the way. Not my style.

              Do you mind if I send this thread of comments to the FBI?

          • Send to the FBI? Please do! But don’t edit anything out. I want them to go after you and your friends that threaten to burn people’s houses down. LOL

      • The only nervousness here is your own projection. Because now all your neighbors know how to get rid of ALL of your cats — PERMANENTLY! LOL!

          • 5, just last week. My land had been cat-free for over 2 years. I guess the cat-lovers in this area hadn’t heard a gun going off for 2 years so they thought it was safe to adopt more of your destructive invasive species vermin again. Some people are just that incredibly stupid. Well, there’s 5 more new cats of their that will never come home. My land is now 100% cat-free again, and shall remain that way until an idiot like you adopts and releases more of them. After they heard the gunshots going off and their cats not coming home, they’ve not adopted more of them. So that’s a good sign. Maybe it’ll only be 5 cats every 2 years now, instead of HUNDREDS that I have to shoot and bury for them.

  8. Here’s some important information to help everyone understand the behaviors of “cat-lovers” and their cats. Something I discovered when local “cat-lovers” (an oxymoronic label if there ever was one) were using cats to overtake my land and woods, eventually even by moving my property markers when using their cats had failed — failed because I got the legal go-ahead to shoot all cats on my land. (An expensive many $1000s lesson for these thieves, surveyors are not cheap.) I often wondered why they kept releasing new cats onto my land even long AFTER they already knew that all their cats were being shot to death, they were told this is what was going to happen, and WAS happening. They didn’t care about cats AT ALL! Clearly something else was motivating them. How many so-called “cat-lovers” do you know that release cats and let them roam free even after seeing many of them become road-kill, harmed by cat and animal attacks, die of diseases, killed by poisonous plants or animals they encounter outdoors, etc.? (Like every last TNR-advocate for starters.) They don’t care about cats, not in the least!

    Now you’ll know exactly why cat-lovers do what they do. It really has nothing at all to do with their concern for cats, nor even the lives of anything else, quite the opposite.

    Human Territorial Behavior By Expendable Proxy

    I have come to the inexorable conclusion that the vast majority of “cat-lovers” and cat-owners that let their destructive invasive-species roam free, and especially those that defend the rights of feral cats to overtake private and public property and wildlife areas, are only (cowardly) using cats as a proxy for their OWN territorial behavior. Not unlike uneducated inner-city youth that will disrespectfully and inconsiderately use loud music to stake-out a territory for themselves. Whether this behavior is done consciously or subconsciously, the underlying motive is the same. As long as they can have one of their cats defecate in another’s yard or destroy their property, animals, and wildlife; and the land-owner not have any recourse; the cat-owner/caretaker owns that territory. It’s time to put a stop to them using their “cute kitty” excuse for usurping and stealing others’ property. If they want territory they can damn well buy it just like anyone else. Instead they’re using underhanded, disrespectful, and manipulative means. By putting (and sacrificing) live animals in the path of their envy and greed. “Cat-lovers” only really want your yard, garden, or forest while making all others and all other animals suffer for what they can’t have nor own. Bottom line–they want to control you and your property. That’s _ALL_ that “cat-lovers” are really after. It’s why they don’t care at all if their cat nor any other animals, nor even other humans, get harmed by their goals and (lack of) values in life.

    Property owners’ tip: Put up signs at the edge of your property, prominently visible to the criminally-irresponsible cat-lovers and all others. Or hand them a paper with the following notice (while in the presence of your witnesses). “Cat-Recreation Land-Use Fee: $10,000 per day per cat. Evidence of your cat using this land will be your legal agreement to these fees. Payable on demand. (legal description of your property in fine-print)” You have every right to charge anyone any amount that you see fit for them using your land for any purpose of theirs. After posting notice then document with video and witnesses anytime you see their cats using your land for any purposes. When you take them to court for non-payment (wait until after they have amassed the amount of money that YOU want 🙂 ) you get to legally own every last thing in their lives; house, cars, what’s left of their savings (if any), garnisheed wages if the amount surpasses the value of what they presently own etc.; just like they have stolen the use of your property all those years. Only you get to take all of their possessions for your own use legally.

    There’s an interesting news report about a community in Florida where cat-advocates are trying to get a court to allow them to use a local shopping-center where they can keep their cats (to act as speed-bumps, car-accidents, and health-violation-lawsuits waiting to happen I presume). They are also doing this to Loews hotel chain, several universities, and even churches. We can now add those to the kinds of property that they want to steal from the owners and control. It never ends with them. Destroy all cats before they and their advocates can and will try to destroy you. Don’t believe me? Google for what these demented cat-advocates have already done to Loews hotels in Florida.

    They can’t be stopped from their behavior. They psychotically believe they are doing “god’s work” for themselves. So you must destroy their MAN-MADE INVASIVE-SPECIES cats. It’s the ONLY solution.

    • man u r crazy. You should be thinking cat lovers are getting it wrong for the sake of their cats, but what you seem to really think is that they are being territorial and they don’t actually love their cats. That is some ugly shit you are caught up in. Maybe I wasn’t so far off with my freaky comment a couple weeks ago. Do you think also that dogs should always be on leads because if not people are just willfully going around being territorially aggressive. If I kick a football accross the road into your garden by accident do you feel threatened by my act of territorial advances and aggression?
      Cats are not man made. Where did you get that idea? Some are domesticated, the ones who probably pose less of a threat to your insanely fragile health and familly. Familly, lol, I just can’t possibly imagine that a woman could stand a person like yourself.
      You should move to Australia. You and you’re .22 would have a great time there shooting man made animals.

      • Until you can come up with a reason that you throw your cats under the wheels of cars while claiming to love them, then “Human Territorial Behavior By Expendable Proxy” will have to stand as the most likely and most plausible explanation.

        Please do explain your absurd and hypocritical actions and words.

        • You’ll have to explain that Woody. No idea what you are talking about. Are you criticizing people who let their cats outside? Sounds like that. And please answer my questions.

          Are you travelling and using hotel internet connections, Woody? It you are there will be a record. And there can’t be that many hotels in the area of the IP address.

          • Oh, that’s it! I’m traveling in a supersonic jet to go from city to city! The IP for this post should be from Columbia South Carolina now. LOL!!

            Yep, they’re ALL dumber than ANY cat.

            • I guess you have multiple IP addresses on your computer. I still think you can be traced if the police are interested but maybe you are the police.

    • “Not unlike uneducated inner-city youth that will disrespectfully and inconsiderately use loud music to stake-out a territory for themselves.”

      Anyone else surprised that like most members of the all-white Audubon Society, there’s more than a touch of overt racism motivating this crazy?

      Is anyone *really* ok with this guy being allowed to own firearms?

  9. Great Michael! The law requires alot of patience mind you. I hope ‘J’ just goes and burns his house down. I assume he found the unique Ip address through the backend of your server/website log files somehow. There is no way he can be telling the truth entirely – like the ‘sheriff’ who told him to shoot them. More likely the sheriff didn’t tell him to shoot any and all of them but perhaps the ones who ‘look feral’ and don’t wear collars. Actually Woodsman is a classic example of somebody behaving as if they are God in control of nature. Notice how he totally has a thing about invasive species. So much so he can recite their names at the drop of a hat. He is a member of the most invasive species but lets not start with the hypocracy. It looks like he thinks these invasive species are somehow not a natural phenomena and he therefore takes it upon himself to start hating and killing at least cats from his list. Basically, give him a gun and he suddenly has the power to re-arrange our ecosystem as he sees fit. He really should be in a mental home or somewhere he can’t hurt anyone. How does a person reach the point of believing they are righteous in their mission to re-balance natural forces according to their own preferences. This is a little like Hitler except it’s not ethnic cleansing. Well I guess people like him might eventually just die off. Let’s hope so. As soon as any person has enough contact with a variety of other people they naturally seem to grow out of his style reptilian thinking. Gotta force those red necks to get on a bus and take a tour of the city every now and then so they dont walk around thinking they are more powerful the the planet they live on. I think it was a good idea to post his details online. I for one would be there in a flash if I lived nearby.

    I think another good way to get action would be to inform all the people in that area about this guy. Some or many of whom will have lost their cats to him. The fact remains that they might be buried in his yard which serves as evidence if a case was made of it. It’s the neighbours who have the most power in this situation I would imagine, with the missing cats. All you need is a group of local citizens to go to the police with the informartion you have provided here and the police can’t ignore it unless they are corrupted badly enough in that particular area which is possible. But people who feel they might have lost their cats to a murderer might not back down either. Also, woodsman said he ‘asked them for years’ so they probably know who he is. It’s all there, one just needs to bring all this together and he could be caught I suppose.

    I have dealt with police in Canada and England though, and I know a bit how they operate. I’m sure something like this would just look like too much work for them, or maybe if the sheriff really did say something then of course the police would do anything to protect their own no matter the moral significance. And they can easily slow people down using the their better knowledge of the process of law. So you would need actually angry neighbours with a lawyer. That could do it. With animals, it’s hard to have confidence in the law. There are victories mind you, but I would say most animal crimes go on undetected. And the police don’t like to admit failures with the rest of us anyway so we can’t possible know how the bigger picture looks.

    • Hi Marc, I agree that in general the police are not that interested in animal crimes. That is why Woodsman and people like him get away with it. Thanks for the support.

    • And just look at how many threats you’ve just made against humans and want to carry them out. LOL!!!!!!!

      Yep, psychopaths and sociopaths, every last cat-lover!

      See, the reason nobody can find me is because RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS OF THE USA EVERYWHERE SHOOT ANY CAT ON THEIR OWN LAND.

      ANY neighbor of someone who lost their cat permanently need only look under the nearest rose-bushes for some cat-shaped fertilizer.

      Wow, you people are sad and sadder!

      Don’t let that cat outsmart you again! LOL!!

      • From what I’ve read here it seems you are dealing with PITA types who find it easy to spray paint a woman’s fur coat in the name of humanity. Don’t understand why you waste your time on them in the first place.

        • I think you have misunderstood the post. I am dealing with an idiot with a rifle who likes shooting stray cats. That is unacceptable to decent minded people.

  10. Licensing and laws do nothing to curb the problem. If cats are required to be licensed then cat-lovers just stop putting collars on their cats, as they did by me. And they won’t even bother getting them micro-chipped, especially not that They want absolutely nothing that can hold them legally responsible, liable, and accountable for the actions of their cats. It’s why many of them even keep cats in the first place. We’re not talking about the topmost responsible citizens of the world, you know. They don’t want that responsibility of what their cat has done coming back on them. If they had even one iota of a sense of responsibility and respect for all other lives on this planet we wouldn’t even be having these discussions.

    On the other hand, I found something that DOES work, and works well, and works fast (well, relative to the years it takes trying to reason with deceitful and lying cat-lovers that accomplishes ABSOLUTELY NOTHING). Where I live cat-lovers have learned that _ALL_ cats, stray and feral, collared or not, ear-tipped or not (because TNR con-artist liars now just clip cats’ ears only without sterilizing or vaccinating them, to protect their hoarded cats from being trapped and euthanized), _ALL_ their cats are humanely shot on sight and buried whenever found away from supervised confinement. (Buried or incinerated to protect our valuable native wildlife from all the deadly diseases these invasive species cats spread today, even after they are dead.)

    The ONLY thing that works is destroying any of their cats found outdoors on your property. They either learn to stop getting more cats that die under the wheels of cars or from animal attacks, or they finally learn how to be a responsible pet owner, respectful neighbor, and learn to keep their invasive species animal under confined supervision, as it should be. Win win win all around. You can either destroy their cat for them humanely, or let their lack of concern for their cat cause it to die inhumanely. Your choice. By destroying their cat for them humanely you are showing them that you care more about their cat than even they do. A bullet is by far the most humane death that any free-roaming cat will ever meet. Their only other options are being hit by cars, environmental poisons, cat & animal attacks, diesease and parasites, freezing to death, baking to death, etc. etc.

    You can’t train a cat to stay home but I found that, in time, you CAN train a cat-owner into being a responsible pet-owner and a respectable neighbor. Most of them are so phenomenally stupid, disrespectful, and criminally irresponsible though that you have to make at least 12-15 of their cats permanently disappear before they even start to figure out what they’ve been doing wrong all during their sorry, useless, and pathetic lives.

    If you live in an area where its not legal to use firearms to destroy any animal that is harming the health, safety, and well-being of you, your family, your own animals, or property (as it *IS* legal in most every area of the nation); then check into laws regarding air-rifles. Ones with ballistics speeds of 700-1200 fps and using pointed vermin-pellets are often advised for use on vermin in no-firearms zones. Many of the newer ones even come with their own sound-suppressor designs built-in. Failing that, then there’s always the SSS and TDSS Cat Management Programs that are exploding in popularity worldwide. Shoot, Shovel, & Shut-Up; or Trap, Drown, Shovel, & Shut-Up. Both methods are legal on every square foot of this earth. No local laws were violated if it never happened! (In the cases where cats have already learned to evade all trapping methods, then inexpensive generic 1-adult-strength acetaminophen (overseas a.k.a. paracetamol) pain-relievers are a more species specific vermin poison. But you really need to collect and dispose of that carcass safely so that native wildlife won’t die from the many deadly diseases cats spread — even after their death.)

    Good luck!

  11. The most ridiculous thing about his whole story is that he didnt just put up a cat proof fence around his sacred fragile property. Methinks he just likes to hate cats and shoot them righteously. Or he is incredibly stupid. If it really is that bad, then he should just move somewhere he won’t be walked all over by territorially aggressive cat owner (LOL, seriously, ‘aggressive cat owners’) _ Woodsman, if you hate them so much then why do you spend time on this website? Surely you could go do something you like? O, that’s right, you like to hate and shoot cats. You truly are a poor unhappy angry wretched man. If I hated cats as much as you do I would just put a fence up or move. And I certainly wouldn’t spend hours on the internet hating them too.

    • The most ridiculous thing about this whole story is that .22s are far far cheaper than any fence (which would only impeded the lives of valuable native wildlife) and .22s need to only be used once! Here’s a clue for you, you criminally irresponsible MORON, it is YOUR responsibility to keep YOUR invasive species animal off others’ property! If you don’t like how someone else is keeping your cats off of their property, that is YOUR fault!

      • Woody, you are repeating yourself and you have run out of argument. All you can do is resort to insults. A sure sign of a failed argument. You cannot support your behavior. It is obviously cruel and illegal. Commonsense dictates that. God, you must be so boring in conversation.

      • You sort of proved my point in that you would rather spend less money shooting and hating the whole time rather than spend a bit more for peace of mind. Either you are poor and miserable, which I doubt, or you thrive off being angry. Michael is right, it’s you who is totally bonkers.

    • Destroying cats is NOT hating cats nor a fear of cats.

      Why do mentally-unbalanced and psychotic cat-advocates always presume that if someone is removing a highly destructive, deadly disease spreading, human-engineered invasive-species from the native habitat to restore it back into natural balance that they must hate that organism? Does someone who destroys Zebra Mussels, Kudzu, African Cichlids, Burmese Pythons, Brown Tree Snakes, or any of the other myriad destructive invasive-species have some personal problem with that species? (Many of which are escaped PETS that don’t even spread any harmful diseases, unlike cats.) Your ignorance and blatant biases are revealed in your declaring that people who destroy cats must somehow hate or fear cats. Nothing could be further from the truth.

      It is people who let a destructive invasive-species roam free that tortures-to-death all other wildlife that have zero respect for life. They don’t even care about their cats dying a slow torturous death from exposure, animal attacks, diseases, starvation, dehydration, becoming road-kill, environmental poisons. etc., the way that ALL stray cats suffer to death. They don’t even respect their fellow human being. This speaks more than volumes about your disgusting character. People like you should be locked up in prison for life for your cruelty to all animals, cruelty to your own cats as well as all the native wildlife that you let your cats skin alive or disembowel alive. If you let cats roam free you are violating every animal-abandonment, animal-neglect, animal-endangerment, and invasive-species law in existence.

      If people DO hate cats today, have LEARNED to hate cats today, you have nobody but yourself and everyone just like you to blame. YOU are the reason people are now realizing that all excess cats must be destroyed on-site and on-sight. You’ve done so much to make people care about cats, haven’t you. If you want to do something about it, direct your sadly and sorely misplaced energies at those that are causing the problem, not at those who are actually solving it.

      In summation: THIS IS YOUR FAULT and THE FAULT OF EVERYONE JUST LIKE YOU. You have NOBODY but yourselves to blame.

      You can take that all the way to the very last shot-dead cat’s grave.

      • So now you are trying to say you don’t hate cats. My god man, calm down and focus a bit. Clearly you hate cats and even more you hate humans who like cats. Thats alot of hate and anger. Your life must be so crappy.

  12. Lol, he even has an email address especially for us cat lovers. So organised. Thats just crazy man. I guess he goes around the internet picking fights with cat people and then keeps those threats like trophies when he gets them.

    Woodsman, your entire life seems to be controlled by cats and your hatred of them.

    Haven’t you got something better to do? It might make you feel better. You could go buy another gun magazine and get off on the latest and greatest guns on the market. I bet you just love guns. Love guns and hate cats. Perfect.

    And you bollox about fbi lists. You are clearly full of it too – and yes, you do seem a tad nervous. I think you should now reply again. You have gone quiet. We need you to keep posting here.

    • Moral of the Story:

      I wasted 15 YEARS of my life arguing with demented cat-lovers. During which time THEIR _INVASIVE_SPECIES_ CATS DESTROYED ALL NATIVE WILDLIFE ON MY LAND. All native prey became tortured cats’ play-toys, all native predators STARVED TO DEATH. Those that became neither died of cats’ diseases they spread everywhere (which not only includes Toxoplasma gondii parasite, but rabies, hookworm, the plague, flea-borne typhus, and now tularemia).

      It wasn’t til I STOPPED arguing and on advice of the sheriff finally did what needed to be done — SHOOT ALL CATS — that my land, all the wildlife on my land, and my life itself started to return to normal. I no longer have to go out twice a day on cat-patrol to shoot more cats nor waste more time and energy burying them to protect wildlife from their diseases. Much to the chagrin of TNR LIARS that spew their “vacuum effect” bullsh**. NO CATS have replaced them in over 2 years!

      Learn from this. You can argue with the Toxoplasmosis parasites in the cat-lovers’ brains until you are blue in the face and your whole planet is destroyed by their cats, but it’ll never get rid of the cats.


      Cats listed in The TOP 40 WORST INVASIVE-SPECIES OF THE WORLD in the “Global Invasive-Species Database”:

      Cats are _NOT_ exempt from invasive-species laws!


      In fact, it is against the law to NOT destroy an invasive-species on-sight. Since cats are genetically engineered through selective-breeding and no longer have ANY native habitat ANYWHERE on earth these laws include cats. Much to the dismay of all criminally irresponsible and psychotic cat-lovers who are desperately trying to raise them to some absurd level of “Community Cats”. If they do that then I’ll just raise “Community Pet Black-Mambas” and release them in all your backyards and parks, then claim the exact same protections for them as cat-advocates want for THEIR INVASIVE-SPECIES CATS. It’d only be fair!

      Only later, AFTER your land and life are 100% free of these invasive-species cats, can you have fun educating the ineducable. Use the time you got back from their invasive-species taking over your life to share the best ways to destroy all cats. Then if you want, make YOUR life THEIR problem. Just as they made THEIR cats YOUR problem for all these many years. It’s only fair! Because that’s what it’s really all about, isn’t it. It’s not about cats at all. They only want to control your life with their cats. You can put a stop to that immediately by destroying their cats. And there’s not ONE THING they can do about it if you do it right. They’ll no longer have any part of your life.

      • Woody, your hatred of the cat is showing. And everything you say is a vain and a weak attempt to justify it and your cruel behavior. You recite the same old stuff over and over. That is a sign of bigotry? Of a closed mind. Of a lack enlightenment. Of indoctrination. Was your father the same as you Woody? I guess he was. He taught you everything didn’t he?

        As Marc says, you shouldn’t have a gun license. But this is America. Anyone can have a gun. Even mad people who kill people en masse regularly.

      • If you honestly think people have cats so they can control your life then there is a serious problem in your brain which needs to be looked at. You said “They only want to control your life with their cats” – that is some serious paranoia you got going there and it’s not safe. You should be reported if you honestly believe things like that, and you have a gun.
        I still think it’s funny how much you have suffered though. I would have just bought the fence, but I value my sanity. You clearly don’t – or even worse, you think you are sane. lol.

        • See: “Human Territorial Behavior By Expendable Proxy” above. It clearly explains EXACTLY why you throw your cats under the wheels of cars to control everyone in your neighborhood.

        • That would be really interesting. I don’t know Ted Williams but Woodsman is mad ; ) – clinically insane requiring and probably receiving daily medication.

  13. Infact you must hate just about everyone because just about everyone doesnt kill cats so they are irresponsible citizens letting the world go to hell according to your fountain of wisdom.

  14. I saw Woodsman identified on a thread not to long ago. Someone said his name is Woody Kaczynski. I traced that name to St. Paul, MN USA, too. That thread has since been removed, I suppose it got too inflammatory with all his rantings. Hope this helps, but not 100% sure that is his name, just going on someone else’s information.

    • Thank you for your help. I am going to see if I can report him to the police and the FBI 🙂 I want this monster to stop killing cats and we have a duty to try.

      • Michael, you have my cooperation if you want to present this conversation to any authority. Albeit that the man says we are psychopaths and have been threatening him I think nobody actually did. All I said was I hoped somebody would go teach him a lesson one day, not that I would or could do any such thing myself. So go for it.

  15. Whatever you do, PLEASE don’t delete this whole blog entry! (hint: you’ve done more to help me stop people like you and your cats than you could ever imagine LOL! p.s. Tell me what city you want me to be traced from next time, I’ll see if I can get the IP pinpointed there for you too. LOL!)

    • I disagree Woody. I feel I have highlighted a nasty side to American life. Maybe you’re either a policeman or a criminal! Or maybe you are all mouth and no trousers.

      • Since the UK has ran into extinction more species than any other country, do you honestly think you are ANY kind of authority on how to tell the rest of the people in the world how to protect their valuable native wildlife from your INVASIVE SPECIES CATS?

        (Oh, and here’s another city’s IP you can trace me to. LOL!!)

        I really need to get this archived in the wayback machine so this can always be referred to for future court cases against psychopaths and sociopaths like you. LOL!

  16. Its things like this, and people like this, that make me really glad I live in the UK. It might happen from time to time, but never to the extent I hear about in the USA.

    • I agree. It is the gun culture that does it. It is the famous 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution; the right to bear arms that results in mass killings by disgruntled people. And the mass shooting of cats. A lot of people want to get rid off the 2nd Amendment. The gun lobby block that.

      • This guy would be poisoning with tylenol as the Audubon Society has advocated, and using live traps, if he didn’t have a gun.

        These people are part of a very cruel cult, including even researchers at the Smithsonian.

        In the US, anyone who cares for cats writes down the license plate numbers of anyone known to support The Smithsonian, Audubon, or American Bird Birding Association.

        These are people who enjoy poisoning animals, and who have staged letter writing campaigns to make sure that journalists who argue in favor of such cruelty don’t lose their jobs.

        • Thanks for your interesting comment.

          This is my page on the cruel scientist:

          In the US, anyone who cares for cats writes down the license plate numbers of anyone known to support The Smithsonian, Audubon, or American Bird Birding Association.

          I find your remark very interesting; remarkable even. I had no idea other people felt like me when I wrote about bird conservationists being heavily biased against cats and advocating killing them. I’d like you to write an article about that! If you want to say some more please use the visitor input form on the home page.

  17. Michael, I just came upon your web-site while trying to track down information on Woodsman001. He has posted on every web-site that deals with cats (and even hunting sites). He has dozens of aliases and often uses two or more of his identities to “talk” to each other. I have googled some of his often used phrases to find where he has been. There are others out there that are very aware of what he is doing and alert the other commenters. I’ve been trying to figure out how to expose this psycho but not only am I not very computer savy but, I only have an old dial-up computer. It was animal advocates that first tracked down Luca Magnotta, I hope that this guy can also be found. Thank you for the work that you are doing to find him.

    • Thanks for the comment. I think he can be found actually. It just takes commitment. I wonder if he does the things he does. It could all be hot air. But it is damaging to the cat.

  18. I am guessing but it would seem that Woodsman is using multiple IP addresses. This may indicate that he works in a place that needs multiple IP addresses (more than one network card per computer). He may be sending these emails and making comments from work.

    That begs the question what sort of workplace needs multiple IP addresses and an internal and external network. A pretty large organization at a guess.

    • Sorry, but you are either mad or bad. Don’t do it. If you don’t want a cat and have one, act responsibly and find a new home for him/her. You are asking, “how do I kill my cat without it being noticed”. Crazy. And horrible. Please act decently and responsibly.

  20. Pingback: Hurrah: We’ve identified Woodsman! | Pictures of Cats

  21. Woodsman,
    Thank you so very much for your posts in various places on the internet.
    We moved into this neighborhood more than years ago, and it was always a very nice peaceful place to live. I used to walk with my black lab every morning. About ten years ago a couple moved in next door and within two weeks my black lab had been poisoned and was dead. He suffered for a week, not being able to get up off his back legs, and he died while I was petting him and still trying to save him.
    My back yard is enclosed by a six foot fence, and my black lab was always inside when not out walking with me.
    It turns out the new neighbors brought fifteen cats with them, and released them to my beautiful gardens to defecate and destroy. I very politely told the new neighbors about this and asked them to keep their cats out of my yard. One of them wouldn’t talk to me, and the other said well how can they keep them from jumping the fence? I said well try keeping them on a leash.
    Two years later I got another dog, a cute little border collie, and soon after he was poisoned and died after a week of suffering, while I kept trying to save him, the same way as the lab. Now I was beginning to suspect the neighbors with the cats, which by this time had grown to forty of them.
    I had never done anything to hurt them at all, just asked them to keep their cats out of my yard, which they never did, they are coming back in all the time now, but I am sure they poisoned my dogs.
    Beyond this, I was in my side yard one Sunday morning, took out some trash, came back in, and all of a sudden my vision was washed out, and my body was moving in stutters. I was worried about losing my sight, then it came back but by then I was concerned about dying! I got in the shower and washed all over with soap and rinsed out my eyes. About an hour later I finally began to feel better, thank goodness, however then I looked at my glasses and they were spotted all over from some type of spray. I had cleaned them that morning, so the only spray they could have gotten would have been from the neighbors next door.
    Thinking about this in retrospect, I think they tried to kill me for asking them to keep their cats from my yard, in fact I am rather convinced of this now, especially after reading through messages on several sites from both sides of this issue and seeing the many death threats that the cat people make. I am convinced that they tried to kill me, and I don’t feel at all safe living next to them.

    • Hi Jes, your story concerns me a lot. However, please don’t praise Woodsman. He likes to shoot cats or he claims to. He is just a nasty troll. Your problem is the people next door. This is nothing to do with cats. They just happen to be irresponsible cat owners but it is their attitude that is at fault.

      On the face of it you have a good reason to contact the police. Poisoning animals is a crime as is poisoning people or attempted poisoning. You need to try and collect some evidence and then call the police. In some states keeping more that a limited number of cats is illegal.

      Also they may be committing a crime with respect to the management of their cats – neglectful etc. That might need to be investigated.

      Tackle these nasty people and be careful. However, I realise it is hard to do that. Sometimes the best answer is to move to get away from them.

  22. Hi Michael,
    Thanks for responding. I doubt the police would do anything, though I have wondered how legal it is to keep forty cats in their yard, plus they attract a lot of other cats too.
    Why do the cat people always talk about killing people who are just trying to keep the cats off their property? I see this in every discussion of the cats running loose.
    These people have a mentality like their cats, and maybe there’s some transference between them. Woodman made the point that the cat people moved his property lines, which is the same thing the cats do.
    The cats kill birds, mammals, reptiles, and the cat people threaten the lives of people just trying to keep the cats off their property. It is the very same thing. I feel there is a house of predators living next to me, not only the cats but also the people.

    • Like I say, the cats are innocent victims because they just act naturally. The cause is irresponsible people allowing their cats to breed and then not being able to properly care from them and also failing to respect neighbors and the community generally.

      These people should be banned from keeping cats and indeed any animal. That would solve your problem except your neighbors would still be a huge pain in backside to you because they are horrible.

      All domestic, stray and feral cat problems are caused by people. Attack them. Find ways to hurt them and pin them down.

      People do far, far more damage to wildlife than cats. Feral cats keep down rodent populations and are part of the ecosystem.

      There is no hard science that supports the view that cats decimate wildlife. There really isn’t. I have done lots of work on this.

  23. In this case I have see the cats kill many birds, including a pair of mockingbirds that used to come to my back yard where I would watch them out the window.
    The cat owners have bird feeders behind their house, on their fences and all around their yard to attract more birds, and then their cats kill the birds.

  24. Hello, I just told you I’ve seen the cats killing many birds, so it’s not just the people. The cats are killing many birds, lizards, and other types of small animals. And suggesting that I move is ridiculous. All the cat people think it is normal to make threats.
    No I don’t feel safe around cat people, but where would I move exactly, as the only place to be safe would be somewhere with no cats.

    • Jes you sound quite paranoid to me, talking about cat people wanting to kill you and your dogs being poisoned and all. Cat people don’t go around killing dogs or people even though cat haters make their life unpleasant for them.
      Your neighbours would be highly unlikely to put poison down or spray poison into the air because it would harm their cats too.
      You seem to have a down on all cats and cat lovers, most of us are responsible and care for our cats properly.
      They may not be your neighbours cats you see, they may be abandoned homeless cats killing birds etc, that is Nature, a hungry animal kills to survive, it’s called the food chain.
      Don’t lower yourself to Woody’s level hating cats and wanting them all dead, the cats are the innocent ones, it’s people to blame as always!
      Live and let live Jes.

  25. Hello, I just told you I’ve seen the cats killing many birds, so it’s not just the people.

    Yes, but the cats would not be there but for the people letting them breed and bringing them with them. Why can’t you understand that simple fact?

    Also 99% of people have one or two cats and are nice people. So you can move to somewhere where there are nice people with one cat who don’t want to poison dogs or people.

    Sorry Jes, but you are being a bit silly.

  26. Okay so I’ve seen the neighbor’s cats killing birds, and so they must be homeless cats? And I’m being a bit silly?

    Woodsman is right. You cat people are idiots.

    • Sorry, it is you who is the idiot. You just don’t get it or don’t want to get or you are troll. As Dee suggests you are probably Woodsman or one of his clan, No one says what you said in this comment and stays on PoC. You are banned.
