    i don't like the idea of shooting cats. i am the owner of 3 kitties myself. but i also know that the feral cats can be a real nuisance. many cannot ever be made pets, because they have never been, or have been stray for so long. i would feel better about a non-lethal solution, like capturing the cats, sterilizing them so they can't breed, and maybe setting up a piece of land, fenced off, for them to live freely. but i'm sure that won't happen. meanwhile, maybe shooting them is the only real solution at this time.

    I'm a dog person myself. I'd let you get away with slapping me, but hurt one of my critters and they're going to have to pry my hands off your throat with the jaws of life.

    That said, I do believe in shooting feral animals, including dogs, which pose a hazard.

    From P's article:

    This problem is hardly limited to Wisconsin. Matter of fact, I saw a report some years ago which outlined exactly the same kind of problem in Miami FL. Feral cats had set up housekeeping in a site which was a stop along the migration route of a certain species of birds. As usual, the only thing the damn politician accomplished was getting a lot of face time in front of a TV camera wringing their hands, pontificating, and saying how they can see both sides of the issue.

    We may have to wait until they start speading diseases before we can do something that's not PC. You know--a few hundred dead kids.
