Australian authorities favor the rat and hate the cat — 2 Comments

  1. When a country decides that dumping thousands of tons of industrial waste onto the Great Barrier Reef will do no harm to the reef and the enormous eco-system it houses, it’s hard to be surprised that they are now going to persecute and kill (horrifically if history and current practice is anything to go by) the poor feral cat.

    Australia has some very ignorant brutes in power.

  2. The myth about cats being good rodent control has been disproved on every island where cats were imported to take care of the imported rodents. Hundreds of years later and there’s nothing but a thriving population of cats and rodents — all the native wildlife on those islands now either extinct or on the brink of extinction — even those native species which are better rodent predators than cats (such as many reptiles and shrews which destroy rodents right in their nests), the cats having destroyed them directly or indirectly.

    Australia is rich with snakes that will be more than happy to take-up the slack where cats failed to keep rodents under control.

    You sure don’t know much about ecology and biology, do you Michael. No wonder the world laughs at you.
