U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service sneakily supports the killing of cats — 19 Comments

  1. I support a colony of seven feral cats (on my own one half acre of real estate in eastern Bradenton) that probably DO kill some wildlife (i.e. squirrels, blue jays, maybe baby opossums but also rats, voles/moles/cockroaches and other vermin (definitely NOT raccoons, coyotes or foxes). This is the world that is.

    While arrogant humans afford themselves the power to decide which species will live or die (indigenous or allegedly invasive (which IMHO parallels deciding which races/religions/sexual orientations are worth saving or eliminating).

    If there is no need for them to think up anything less provocative and more humane then please explain to me how that is differentiated from the cat behavior that the USFWS is advocating we eliminate?

    • Correction:

      Arrogant humans afford themselves the power to decide which species will live or die; indigenous or “invasive”. This thinking, IMHO, mirrors public opinion on which races/religions/sexual orientations are worthy of saving or damning to elimination).

    • Such a beauty as well as the ones below.
      I agree. It’s just realistic and nature for cats to prey on other wildlife.
      No human has been assigned to decide who lives and who dies.

  2. The USFWS, basically, intimidated Escabian Couty, Florida into postponing their potential TNR program when they had no authority to do that.
    They have no policy regarding ferals but were able to “BOO” an entire county into inaction.
    In essence the USFWS, a branch of the federal government, broke the law by deceit and intimidation.
