Kill 'em All

Wisconsin votes to legalise cat-hunting

Legalise? They should make it mandatory. Obviously, I like those cute house cats (ie, individuals). However, I also like songbirds (in the sense of species). And at the moment, the fight's just not fair. If a pride of lions killed too many antelope, then their cubs wouldn't have enough to eat.

It is impossible for a domestic cat to eat 'too many' birds. They can keep killing until they're all gone, as happened in New Zealand where a single domestic cat killed an entire species of birds on an outlying island (the Stephens Island Wren).

Cats also kill other stuff. It is not proper or natural for a house cat to kill wild animals, although it has been scientifically proven that it is impossible to demonstrate this to a cat owner.

Apologies to Mr. Burroughs.
