At a distance can you kill a feral cat humanely with a rifle? — 3 Comments

  1. A better question to ask is, “Can a cat humanely torture-to-death another animal? Wasting its life by torturing it to death just for the cat’s play toy and as a prided gift for the cat’s owner.”

    Kill any one invasive species community-vermin cat by any means, no matter how it suffers to death nor how long it takes to die, means saving the lives of countless thousands of other animals from suffering to death. That’s the true suffering-animal equation. Can’t you see beyond your own lap? According to your reasoning, an animal gutted alive or skinned alive by you using your cat to do so is a humane way for an animal to die. That means it would even be humane to gut-alive or skin-alive a cat. There is no difference. So be it then. Your choice!

    If you don’t want any cats, or ANY animals, to suffer to death the solution is simple–don’t let cats roam free. Why does this solution, which can even be grasped by a 2-year-old’s comprehension, evade you so often and so easily? Do you just play at being stupid for attention, or do you have no choice?

    • “Can a cat humanely torture-to-death another animal? Wasting its life by torturing it to death just for the cat’s play toy and as a prided gift for the cat’s owner.”

      I think that your question is misconceived. I have made this point before. You have anthropomorphised the cat. You use the word “torture” to describe the actions of a cat. You can’t do that. Only people can torture because the word was formulated to describe the actions of people. In the animal world, animals do not torture other animals. And you have to describe animals from the standpoint of their world. Therefore, in my opinion, your argument is poorly formulated and incorrect.

      Thank you clarify your attitude towards killing cats. You have no intention of killing cats humanely. That means I can describe you as being very cruel and a nasty person.

      In addition, even if you did successfully describe a cat as torturing its prey it does not thereby justify you doing the same thing. Surely you have your own standards and you don’t need to follow the standards of a cat which you say is a nasty invasive species.

      • Then I guess it’s perfectly humane for a dog-owner to let their dog rip your cats to shreds–in keeping with your lame non-anthropomorphic excuse. Good to know. I’ll let everyone know that letting their dogs rip cats to shreds is approved by Micheal Broad of PoC website as a perfectly humane way for their community-vermin cats to die, no matter how long it takes for their cats to die that way. Thanks!
