  • Open Season on Cats

    I personally don't like cats but I have never been embarrassed to live in Wisconsin.......until now....

    www.startribune.com/stories/462/5279000.html

    The short version for you lazy people
    If a firefighter from La Crosse gets his way, stray cats in Wisconsin could legally be blown from here to feline eternity. Not surprisingly, the proposal to allow the shooting of free-roaming cats has horrified cat lovers nationwide.

    You know, there's like a butt-load of gangs on this forum. This one gang kept wanting me to join because I'm pretty good with a bo staff.

    Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

      Well, I personally don't like cats either and I don't think this is the solution, but I think something needs to be done about stray and wandering cats. I'm fed up with cleaning up cat cr*p from my garden. My dogs NEVER used to leave anything in anyone else's garden or in a public place, so why should I have to put up with it from cats? If rats were doing the same, I'd be socially allowed to go and have them exterminated, but since cats are supposedly 'domesticated' I'm not allowed to.

        when i were living in blighty i was freaked out, (read: FREAKED OUT) by how many cats were over there.

        really, really spooky.

        that firefighter should take a holiday in england to, y'know, relax.

          The correct solution to the problem is to implement a good TNR (trap-neuter-release) program. It has been proven that trying to execute, relocate, or otherwise remove the animals does no good, because they will breed faster than they can be removed. Also, by removing a native cat population, youfree up a food source that will simply attract other cats to the area.

          There are chemicals, etc you can buy that act as cat repellents if you don't want them on your property.

          And personally, I view cats as much more contributing members of society than most people. If I had my way, people who are cruel to animals would be blown from here to feline eternity.

          www.saveacat.org/acr_articles/TNR.htm

          as a matter of fact, give me 10 minutes alone in a room with an animal abuser. By the time I am done, what's left of that person will never do it again. And it is documented fact that many animal abusers go on to abuse people.

          thanks for your concern, Limed. I don't live in Wisconsin. But Wisconsin isnot the first place to propose such a ridiculous measure. People suggest things like this all the time.

            also, the term 'free roaming' cats makes it possible to shoot pet cats who are allowed outdoors, not just their wild counterparts. Yet another reason that mine are indoor only.

                    In all fairness, if animal rights can have a person prosecuted for cruelty, then why the hell should things be different if an animal is cruel? People are not killed for animal crimes, so why then should animals be?

                    Humans are just bigots, that think everything should be centred around their own convenience ... hell, in all fairness, we should also have over-populated and crime-infested regions of humans shot too (just to be sure they don't potentially violate other humans' space) ... but you don't see the law passing such an idea forward do you (even if it that does help reduce villain-related crimes)!? Genocide is what such a law would be be proposing, and like morea says ... that only attracts other such populations over time.

                    The real problem with villanizing cats (or any other lifeform) ... is where do we draw the line between animal/human rights, and animal/human laws for conviction? We have a long way to go I feel ...

                          trywatching a suffering animal die inyour arms and then tell me thatthis is appropriate.

                          it's against everything that I stand for.

                              So the cats have to suffer because of the humans mistakes? Interesting stupidity!! If pet owners would take some responsibility for their animals and get them neutered then none of this would be a problem. It's not like the cats decided to go out and say...Lets pancake things up for the humans! They are animals, intelligent but at the same time primative compared to the human race. That is why they are our pets. They are to be cared for by us. They are not property, they have feelings and needs. It's about god damn time that ppl point the finger in the right direction. It's not the cats' fault!! Don't slaughter them because of human stupidity. I feel that we fight everyday for abortion, death penalty and civil rights. WTF?! Why the hell do animal rights fall so god damn far behind??

                              I am appalled that a state would even consider this! Thank god I don't live there...i'd be out of there so fast!


                              Hey here's one for you...any kid that isn't in there house is fair game right? Seems only fair to me!!
