Letter of the Week
Jim Anderson (tSW 5/22) has a long list of reasons to be alarmed about the killing of indigenous animals by non-indigenous cats, but he ignores one very critical fact. Countless indigenous populations have been decimated not by cats, but by non-indigenous humans who have irreparably altered or destroyed their natural habitats, or just plain killed them off. It's not the fault of feral cats that they were tossed out of someone's window and are just trying to survive. There is a bigger issue here. If you insist on playing judge, jury and executioner, at least make sure that you've got the right species on trial.
