Recently, the Alliance for Animals, the Dane County Friends of Ferals, and Madison business MadCat found out that the DNR's Conservation Congress will be considering a proposal regarding the legal designation of feral cats at the annual Spring Hearings on April 11, 2005. The proposal is clearly designed to be the first step in allowing the unregulated hunting of feral cats. In addition, it would also apply to cats without collars and cats not under the "owner's direct control."
I live in Madison and am mildly outraged.
Can you do some local stuff about this? I am just freaking horrified.
Seriously. I'll hunt them down if this goes through, man. Stupid bastards.
this is.an.outrage... somebody should do something..for the love of god, this is ridiculous..but madison (WI, I assume?) is pretty liberal, and it should be determined unconstitutional, yes?
One would freaking think so. Wisconsin, yes. They're over populated, well so what? So are humans. Shall we hunt them next?
Hunting kitties :( That makes me sad. But you could like lure them in by just turning on a can opener(jk). However, I know all animal attachments like this are culturally relative. Such as the we eat pigs, but Islamic and Jewish people don't. We eat beef while the Hindus eat consider the cow sacred. And the chinese eat dogs (and sell their fur) and cats, while we consider them pets. I these sort of animal taboos and attachments are culturally relative, but I still can't bare to think of someone hunting cats:( (excuse me while I hug a tree and eat some tofu)
I don't kill, or eat any animals, so I guess I'm probably not the best gauge...
Bloody American gun laws, they just want something to shoot at...
No lie. What, are they going to say they're going to eat the cat? That's their excuse for killing most everything else..
we absolutely must
do something about this. insane. i just don't even have the words to describe what this is.
(oh, and i found something else you might like. now's really not the time, granted, but: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7052249/?GT1=6305
But, yes, we must do something. I already posted a nasty comment on that forum.
Look for the one from Erin :)
Mmmm... kitties... I like mine on rye... mmmmm...
I hunt foxes... foxy ladies, that is... giggity giggity...
(Oh man, I love Quagmire from Family Guy)
I am extremely sickened by this. Cats are my favorite animal and I have three of them. No, my cats don't wear collars. Yes, I let my cats go outside to get exercise. Hell yes, I would kill anyone who shot one of my cats! I really do hate most of the human species. We are the only animal that kills for pleasure. How could anyone get pleasure out of this?
I don't understand it. I'm horrified.
