Australian Ornithologist Misleads Online News Media On Cat Predation — 6 Comments

  1. Just ONE million per day? That’s nothing. Why are you and they even whining about it. Cats are torturing to death 6.5 million birds PER DAY and 33.7 million other small mammals and reptiles PER DAY in the USA–confirmed, documented and published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. That’s actually considered a low average just to be safe. If you want to blindly disagree then where are your peer-reviewed scientific journal-published studies that claim and PROVE otherwise? Oh, that’s right, you have none and will never have any. You can’t disprove reality. You act all surprised over that piddly 1 million per day and don’t even want to believe it. Some nations have it far far worse than they do!

      • With 100 MILLION feral and stray cats each killing only 1.3 birds PER WEEK, those numbers hold valid. That’s how few birds need to be killed by every cat per week to make even the LOWEST estimation valid.

        The rest deleted because super arrogant and foul mouthed Woody cannot comment without insulting people…. (Admin)

        Note: The studies are inaccurate and are guesstimates. You know that but refuse to acknowledge it.

        • No I just know that you’ll insult people so I have to moderate your foul comments but I still publish them in the interests of free speech but God I think someone should shut you up permanently.

  2. Yeah, the split second that I saw the headline, the word extrapolation came to mind. I may not be rocking and bird awards (what happens to them when no one is worthy of an award? That’s right, they give them out anyway.) And you’re right about the news media. They’ll hype anything and everything, even if they doubt the voracity. It’s all about readership and clicks. Dumping on cats is easy click-bait. This is the year of let whoever say whatever, too.
