As "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" so "fair is in he who judges". Personally I believe discharging a firearm in a residential area is extremely dangerous. I would trap the cats and turn them over to the local human society.
Two wild birds were killed in my garden this week by a local cat. If they had been my birds, and they had been killed by a dog, I would have been legally allowed to shoot the dog. But apparently it is OK for cats to kill wild birds. Is this fair?
Trap them and sell them to your local Chinese restaurant. They may also give you vouchers for a few free meals.
I agree Ray. It's time for you to get a cat trap. It's time consuming and a hassle being patient but it's worth it in the end.
Shooting them might not do much for neighbourhood harmony, and shooting the owner would be just a tad illegal, but shouldn't the Greens be campaigning to have all cats sent to a finishing school for felines before being released to prey on unsuspecting avians?
Cats that continue to offend could then be reclassified from domestic to industrial animals and could be used as witches' hats in advanced driving courses.
People actually used to keep their dogs loose just like cats, until legal action was taken. The same should be for cats
There are no community laws that rule nature in terms of an animal killing a wild animal (in this case, bird - a natural prey of a natural predator). Domestic animals killing other domestic animals .. Yep, you bet. Pets are considered as property and it is against the law for a domesticated pet to kill someone elses pet...but not a wild animal. Same goes for rodents and insects (rats, mice, bugs .. you name it).
That is just the nature of the beast..litterally. There is nothing 'fair' about nature.
You just need a couple of these in your yard !
Nature takes care of her own.
I'm just hoping you wouldn't REALLY shoot a dog! 😲
No, it sure isn't fair, and PEOPLE NEED TO KEEP THEIR DAMN CATS INSIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
