How about that. I didn't suspect that other hunters would be such blatant idiots. Okay, if them spreading toxic diseases across the country to all wildlife and humans isn't enough, then here's another good reason:
Due to cats being genetically engineered through selective breeding, they all have varying coloring patterns. If a cat has bold patterns this is perceived by ALL wildlife as the universal symbol for toxic defense mechanisms or olfactory defense mechanisms. A wild animal that could be its predator won't touch it or go near it. If they see another cat without bold patterns, now they won't consider that one as a food source either because they saw one that was toxic by its coloring patterns. If a starving wild animal eats a cat that's infected with Toxoplasma gandii and feels even ill from it, it won't ever go near a cat again.
Cats are an invasive species. Bred by man for man’s purposes through selective-breeding, a form of genetic engineering. They are NOT an indigenous species anywhere on the planet today and have NO PLACE in nature. They have no more right to be out in the natural world than some genetically engineered insect that, if released out into nature, would destroy all wildlife. JUST AS THEY ARE ALREADY DOING EVERYWHERE THEY ARE ALLOWED TO ROAM FREE.
It's not just the loss of game-bird populations either. Feral cats and farmers that let theirs roam free have decimated the natural food-chain in my woods. The resident foxes, owls, and other predator animals no longer had a food source. The feral cats destroyed all the smaller animals that all others depended on. The native species all starved to death. That's what cats do to ALL native animals.
I live where it is perfectly legal to defend your property and animals from destruction by others' animals. I lost count after dispatching the first 20 piece-of-s*** vermin with a good .22, outfitted with laser-sight and zoom rifle-scope. I didn't have to waste even one bullet, making this solution highly economical as well. Think of how many dollars and hours of your lives that you have spent trapping, transporting, calling, complaining, restoring damaged property, et.al. ... and still all the problems that these useless cat-lovers have caused remains. If your aim is good this is far more humane than methods that "humane" societies use. Instead of dying a slow death by animal-shelter methods they don't even know they've been shot. It is now the preferred method for disposing of feral cats in many states. (In fact, shooting is too good for them. By all rights they should be made to starve a slow death, just like they caused to all the predator wildlife. Or maimed to die a slow death, just like they did to all the prey they destroyed. But I'm not as inhumane as cat-lovers and cats are.)
It's time to give cats and cat-lovers the same consideration and respect that they have for all humans and all wildlife--that means NONE. Don't waste your time arguing with disrespectful, inconsiderate, and ignorant cat-lovers either, as I stupidly tried to do too many times in the past. Just do what needs to be done and there'll be nothing to argue about.
This year owls and foxes have returned to my woods. Through a large effort of my own, including raising and releasing native mice and voles to help repopulate the species that their piece-of-s*** cats destroyed. Their lousy cats are finally gone. But I'll shoot again on first-sight the first chance I get (and anyone who tries to stop me from doing what needs to be done). The rewards for ridding one's land of ALL cats and restoring the native wildlife population are far too great.
NOW do you feel less stupid? Probably not. At least look up the definition of the word "moron". (A person who is ineducable.)
