Jefferson officers shoot
cats to control feral population

Jefferson, IA — The city of Jefferson has come up with a solution that involves shooting cats to control the population. There are multiple feral cat colonies in the central Iowa town, and the city claims shooting the animals is its only option. "Cats don´t belong outside," Jefferson City Councilman Matt Wetrich said. "There´s research showing hundreds of millions of birds in the U.S. alone." Wetrich is a naturalist by trade and knows what feral cats do to an ecosystem. But he also knows the attachment so many people have to the furry creatures, which is why he admits the city´s policy of

Very wasteful. Trapped and shipped to China and North Korea, they could be a symbol of our increasing good relations.

FTA:"Cats don´t belong outside..."

Matt Wetrich, besides being a ´naturalist´ by trade and ´knowing´ what feral cats do to an ecosystem, is a pinhead.

You cannot blame the declining number of many wild birds only to cats. You have to also consider habitat loss, automobiles, the invasion of non native species like starlings and house sparrows, etc.

neuter and return to the wild ... like that will stop the fur balls from killing and eating the birds.
Just have a good aim and put ´em down quickly

Sad to have to do. I once did some support tech work that turned out to relate to gassing animals at a county "pound".

It was one of the worst days of my life, never would even consider doing it again.

I love pets, but the part where excess have to be destroyed is more than I can stand. I know, on one level, that it has to happen, but I sure hate it.

Hope they don´t mind all the rats and mice. Mice and rats eat corn, right? How much corn does Jefferson, Iowa have? There is a solution to control the cat population. It is called spay and neuter. They cannot reproduce.

Cats don´t belong outside? Really? Cats are natural hunters. The city councilman doesn´t know what he is doing. A lot of that going around in government.

“Cats don’t belong outside”?

Feral cats, according to our former humane society director, a smart and decent man, find their “passion pits” (his term) in the yards of those who have no dogs or cats.

He kindly loaned me a humane trap, which the HS subsequently picked up. Problem solved.

I have built barns and dairy buildings, silos, etc, on farms overrun with feral cats. They are exceptionally destructive. I feel sorry for them, because I love cats (mine especially), but these feral things are off the charts destructive and disruptive.

Wonder how many birds get clocked in the wind farms the greenies had to have? Shooting´s not a warm fuzzy way to control the wild population, but having watched 20+ starving & run over kitties the neighbor left to breed & dump in yard isn´t any nicer.

Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR). We have been involved in it for decades now. We have gone through three distinct colonies of cats (approx 10 cats) in almost 20 years.. trapped, sterilized, feed/water, and they eventually die off and get replaced and we start again. The community feral cat population in our area has drastically reduced and the health of the animals is so much better.

TNR works and is easy to do. Many times you can do it with the help of a local TNR group.. they will lend traps, teach you how to trap, help trap them, and even help with costs for fixing them.

Cats are territorial. They will guard their territory especially if the colony is stabilized by sterilization. Get the whole colony fixed and let them live out their natural lives which will probably be no more than 5-8 years. No more babies will be produced and little to no disease since sterilized cats are far less likely to fight and pass illness.

As for birds, I have seen far more domesticated pet house cats let out for their daily rounds kill birds than ferals who have a steady food source. My pet cats are indoors only. If we were still on the farm, and hopefully one day will be again, we will have sterilized barn cats for rodent control.

This is upsetting because I have cats. Why not euthanize them rather than shoot them? Why not spay and neuter and promote adoption?

Modern humans´ distant relatives left Africa earlier than previously thought—rewriting a key chapter in humankind´s epic prequel, according to a discovery unveiled on Wednesday in Nature. Nearly a hundred stone tools found at the Shangchen site in central China may push back the spread of our ancient cousins—hominins—out of Africa by more than a quarter million years. The toolmakers lived at Shangchen on and off for 800,000 years between 2.1 and 1.3 million years ago, leaving behind tools that are unprecedented outside of Africa. The site´s oldest tools are roughly 300,000 years older than Dmanisi, a 1.8-million-year-old site in the Republic of

When Rob Holcombe and his husband bought a studio on Hawaii’s Big Island in 2015, they knew it was in an active volcano zone. But the Berkeley, Calif., couple had fallen in love with the place and gambled that molten lava would stay away from the forested getaway overlooking the Pacific that Mr. Holcombe describes as a “Garden of Eden.” “We figured we could get insurance, and it was worth the risk,” said the 52-year-old computer programmer. The couple did get insurance, but it won’t cover much lava damage. Their second home is one of hundreds threatened by renewed eruption at Hawaii’s Kilauea

The Senate Ethics Committee offered a brutal rebuke of New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez on Thursday, accusing the Democrat of providing political favors for a friend in exchange for expensive gifts and vacations. “The Committee concludes that your actions violated Senate Rules and related statutes, and reflected discredit upon the Senate,” reads a bi-partisan letter from the ethics panel’s six members. The committee, with Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson as chair, ordered Menendez to repay the fair market value of gifts he received from his friend, a Florida eye doctor, Salomon Melgen, and to amend his public financial disclosure reports.

BEIJING (CBSNewYork) — China is rolling out a high-tech plan to give all of its 1.4 billion citizens a personal score, based on how they behave.

University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth. Ensor, an English professor at the University of Michigan, begins by citing the “Ecosex Manifesto,” which

Congress may ban the slaughter of cats and dogs to sell as meat or for human consumption and punish offenses with a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. The House Committee on Agriculture approved by voice vote an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday that would make all sales of domesticated canines and felines illegal, Politico reported. “Adopting this policy signals that the United States will not tolerate the disturbing practice in our country,” California Republican Rep. Jeff Denham said in a statement as he introduced the amendment. Some believed the ban unnecessary, as eating dogs and cats is rare in the

Here´s one for all the parents out there: Is it OK to let your child eat peanut butter at Target? A mother on a New York parenting blog wrote Monday that while shopping at the store, she gave her four-year-old daughter a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and "a woman stopped me to lecture me about peanut allergies." The child´s mother then asked other moms on UrbanBaby if it was now unacceptable to eat peanut butter in public. If your reaction is of course not, it´s a free country, you are definitely siding with the minority. The anti-peanut butter backlash was swift and brutal.

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen.

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast.

A 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings.
