Suburb of Canberra Australia is a Cat Containment Area — 6 Comments

  1. To be frank if they included a picture of a dog on that sign and it said pet containment area I wouldn’t have an issue with it. Once again this is a slap in the face to cat owners and an implication that they are somehow to blame for all the dead birds even though there doesn’t seem to be any real science just a mess of screaming birdwatchers who themselves can be an issue with wild bird populations.

  2. Are they thinking that this act will also help to reduce the feral cat population in the long run? I definitely agree with your view, Michael, regarding responsible cat ownership.

    • Yes, they want to remove all feral and domestic cats from the wider environment. They want to kill all feral cats but realize that it won’t be acceptable to the public so they are trying alternatives such as confinement by law.

      • Actually, they’re attempting both–and more. The cat cull is into its third year, and is scheduled to continue for two more. Fortunately decision-makers at the national level disregarded the shrieking and flailing cat lobbyists who prioritize proliferating their “pets” in the Australian environment over public health and biodiversity.

        • Cat lobbyists are actually concerned about humans behaving decently and humanely which is clearly difficult to achieve in Australia. You have lost your moral compass as illustrated in your cricketers cheating! Aussie would do better to look themselves in the mirror and ask, “What can we do as humans to reduce the negative impact we have on native species?” Humans are far more damaging to Australian native species than cats. And you shot millions of kangaroos annually. You’re gun crazy you guys. Horrible place.
