In fact we are told he was raised to be a bird watcher by his parents, or one of them, perhaps his father. This means his ornithology is deeply engrained supporting the idea that he is very motivated – hence his bizarre behavior.
Example of his comments – this is a tiny section of one he made today:
Destroying cats is neither hating cats nor a fear of cats. I had to LEGALLY shoot and bury literally hundreds of these invasive species vermin to stop them from gutting-alive and skinning-alive the last of the native wildlife on my lands. (true story) Apparently, gutting alive and skinning alive animals with your vermin cats is perfectly acceptable to an animal torturing c_nt like you.
Why do mentally-unbalanced and psychotic cat-advocates……
His photograph and name came to light thanks to Dee, who spotted the name and the picture amongst comments below an article on an online newspaper.
I’m not sure why the photograph was taken. The photo shows an angry, disgruntled man, which fits the Woody profile. It may have been taken by the police in preparation for a criminal trial. Jim Stevenson shot a cat in Galveston in November 2006.
It happened on the toll bridge at San Luis Pass, Galveston County. He was arrested and a .22 caliber rifle was discovered in a white van he was driving. The rifle was fitted with a scope. This does sound like Woodsman to me because he has frequently admitted to shooting cats. He has also admitted to owning a .22 calibre rifle.
Stevenson faced a possible sentence of two years in prison for shooting this feral cat. The cat had been stalking a piping plover (a shorebird). Stevenson was tried but the jury could not make up their minds (hung jury) and he was not convicted.
This story fits in nicely with what we know of Woodsman from what he has stated himself in many comments.

On another occasion, I think it was in November 2007, Stevenson claimed that someone tried to shoot him. Stevenson says that he was spending a quiet Wednesday evening at home alone. After dark he went to his car to pick up an expensive telescope (to find out where those evil feral cats are!). As he was leaving his porch a bullet shattered the glass door where he had just been. Stevenson scrambled inside and dialled 911.
Stevenson said that he had to stay in a hotel that night for his own safety. The police dropped the investigation because, I suspect, they could not find sufficient evidence to support Stevenson’s story. Apparently their leading suspect was Stevenson himself.
It seems that Stevenson’s work includes guided tours to birding hot spots such as Costa Rica. I’m not sure but perhaps all his work involves ornithology. He appears to have lived in Galveston County but Dee informed me that he now lives around Tallahassee in Florida.
That’s it for the time being. I believe this is Woody. What do you think? Why hasn’t someone asked the police to investigate? Shouldn’t someone in the US inform the police on the basis that he harasses people on the internet? In the UK, it is a crime.
Woody may well comment. I’ll let him this time but be prepared for the usual monstrous trolling rants. Woody has therapy (he needs it).
1. Cats don’t decimate bird populations.
2. I believe feral cat populations need controlling. Any sensible person would support that but not in the way Stevenson advocates. That is my problem with him: his cat killing (illegal despite what he says) and his vile trolling.
