Australian Government Agrees Extermination of Feral Cat With Virus

Feral cat Australia
A harebrained scheme?  The machinations of a demented government who detest the feral cat because it destroys native wildlife?  They say the feral cat in Australia is savage.  They say it is huge and that it kills 5 prey items every night and there are 15,000,000 of them and so gradually they are wiping out native species in Australia. What can they do about it?

The answer: flood the entire country with a virus that has been generated in some laboratory somewhere which kills every single feral cat but does not touch any other species of animal and neither does it touch the domestic cat because they intend to inoculate every domestic against the virus that they deliberately spread across the country.

That is the general plan as stated by the Australian government in an article on the online newspaper The Australian. It is a form of germ warfare and the enemy is the feral cat. And the Aussies do see the feral cat as the enemy native species.

Clearly and sensibly they plan to work on this for many years before beginning to instigate it but at the outset, to me, it seems a foolhardy and unworkable solution.

The first thing to do is to stop estimating the number of feral cats and stop estimating the number of animals that feral cats kill in their country and do a proper, accurate study to get real figures.  They may well discover that they are out on their estimates which in turn could completely overturned their plans. They also need to check out the consequences of eradicating the Australian feral cat because it is part of the ecosystem. What about rodent populations?

If their estimates are correct and if their assessment of the impact of the feral cat on native species is accurate then I would suggest that they use the well tried and tested plus humane method of controlling feral cats namely trap-neuter-return.

If they instigated, immediately, a thoroughly well funded and organised nationwide trap-neuter-return program, over 10 to 20 years they would most likely see real advances with which they would be satisfied.

You've never heard of the phrase "hunted to extinction"? It works on any species. Especially one as prolific as these man-made cats that can breed 3-4X's faster than any naturally occurring cat-species. It worked where I live! HUNDREDS of them shot dead and buried to stop them from gutting-alive and skinning-alive any more of our valuable native wildlife. The eradication so complete and effective that I've not seen even ONE cat in over four years now. (Spread some more of your "vacuum-effect" lies and deceptions. I laugh every time.) Hunted-to-extinction sure beats those failed trap & kill methods. Because trapping can NEVER catch-up to their breeding rates. You TNR morons are just that -- MORONS. If trapping and killing them failed, then what makes you think that trapping and sterilizing them will be any better? You'll never be better than the weakest-link in your methods. Stupid much?

Woody, one day someone very sensible will exterminate you and everyone like you because you make the world a worse place. People created the feral cat and they have a duty to control it humanely but you don't see the morality of that do you Woody boy? What about the effect on rodent populations? The feral cat is part of the ecosystem you fool.

Nature Advocate said...

If you think that cats make good rodent control, think again.

Your myth about cats being good rodent control has been disproved on every island where cats were imported to take care of the imported rodents. Hundreds of years later and there's nothing but a thriving population of cats and rodents -- all the native wildlife on those islands now either extinct or on the brink of extinction -- even those native species which are better rodent predators than cats (such as many reptiles and shrews which destroy rodents right in their nests), the cats having destroyed them directly or indirectly. And I bet you think of yourself as educated.

The rodents reproduce in burrows and holes out of the reach of cats, where they are happy to reproduce forever to entertain cats the rest of their lives, and make your own lives miserable, on into infinity. On top of that, when cats infect rodents with cat's Toxoplasma gondii parasite, this hijacks the minds of rodents to make the rodents attracted to where cats urinate. (Google for: Parasite Hijacks The Mind Of Its Host)

Cats actually attract disease-carrying rodents to where cats are. The cats then contract these diseases on contact with, or being in proximity to, these rodents. Like "The Black Death", the plague, that is now being transmitted to humans in N. America directly from cats that have contracted it from rodents. Yes, the plague is alive and well and being transmitted by cats today. Cats attracting these rodents right to them further increasing the cat/rodent/disease density of this happy predator/prey balance. It has been documented many many times. The more cats you have, the more rodents and diseases you get. I even proved this to myself, when having to rid my lands of hundreds of these vermin cats by shooting and burying every last one of them. A rodent problem started to appear about the same time the cats started to show up. 15 years of it. Then all rodent problems disappeared after every last cat was gone. All the better rodent predators moved back into the area after the cats were dead and gone. Not seen one cat anywhere nor had even one rodent in the house in 4 years now.

Cats DO NOT get rid of rodents. I don't care how many centuries that fools will claim that cats keep rodents in-check, they'll still be wrong all these centuries. Civilizations of humans have come and gone in great cities like Egypt, yet their cats and rodents remain in even greater pestilent numbers.

No cat population anywhere has ever been able to control rodents effectively. But native predators can -- easily.

Keep deceiving your astoundingly ignorant selves.

Here's how you can make a cat-licking, facts-twisting, propaganda-spewing fool reveal just how absurd, hypocritical, ignorant, stupid, and ludicrous ALL their beliefs are; all with just ONE simple question. Ask them:

"If you believe that these cats are a natural part of the environment and belong out in nature, then why are you even bothering to sterilize them?"

Blatantly ignorant hypocrite much?

Your agreement to sterilize them is your very agreement that they don't even belong there in the very first place. Is this too difficult for you to comprehend?

What is it? Is your brain so damaged by an infestation of Toxoplasma gondii parasites that have invaded your mind that it is not allowing you to think clearly? Unaware of your own brain-damage, are you? Or are you just this phenomenally stupid, uneducated, and terminally ignorant? What's your excuse? We'd all like to know. Because if we can finally figure out why cat-lickers are just this astoundingly stupid and blatantly hypocritical then we can solve the main cause of this problem and it will never happen again. How do we "cure" you?

Throw some more cats under the wheels of moving cars, or let them get slowly eaten from the inside-out by parasites, force them to attack each other to fight-to-the-death for territory and survival (a main selling-point of TNR, yet it is a highly punishable criminal offense in every state of the union to force ANY domesticated animals to fight each other for their very survival) -- while you loudly declare to the whole world yet some more how much that you truly "love" cats and how "humane" that TNR is for cats. That's always good for another laugh-at-you.

My Dear Woody, are you Jim Stevenson? I have a photo of you. I'll do a page about you tomorrow and I hope you will respond and if you do please respond honestly. Why not come out and have the courage to do that. Show your face. What you write carries far less weight if you constantly hide your identity. People laugh at you and mock you because you hide your identity and then rant hour after hour and it is always about exactly the same thing. You use the same words every time and you say the same things every time. It is quite bizarre to a normal person to read what you write.

Michael Broad said...

Woody, I never read your comments except the first few words because I know what it says without reading it and I know who wrote it without reading it. So the next time that you write a comment just right 3 lines.

Say something like this:

This is Woody. I hate feral cats. They kill native wildlife species particularly birds. I shoot feral cats. I hate people who like cats. People who like cats are ignorant. Feral cat spread disease. Feral cats should be exterminated.

That is all you need to say.

Nature Advocate said...

You useless idiots have been trying to find out who I am for over 3 years now. For the longest time you were firmly convinced I was any of 5 to 8 different people that you've hated for decades. You were wrong on all counts and are still wrong on all counts to this very day.

Here's what I don't get. If these psychotic net-stalking cat-lickers want to stop someone (me) from shooting all their cats, why are they going after someone they can't even find and going through all that relentless net-stalking effort to do so? Is it because it is safe? Because they can always say, "We can't find him to stop him! OH NO!" LOL

When today, this very hour, this very moment, you can go after someone and stop them, their friends, and all their families from shooting every last cat they see!

Here's an even easier target for your false and manipulative accusations against others.

washingtontimes D0T com SLASH news/2010/dec/3/the-time-for-kitty-killing-has-come/

Just go after Ted Nugent. He, his family, and all his friends have shot far more HUNDREDS of cats than I ever have! Also all done perfectly legal as well. (I told you that you cat-licking fools don't know squat about property and animal laws, and you refuse to believe it. Too bad, so sad!)

And you can find Mr. Nugent this very hour!

What's the matter? Do you like to just blow smoke up everyone's a** and not actually go after any real cat-killer? You know, ones that you can actually find, right now, today. LOL

NO sane person in the world wants to get a bunch of sociopathic and psychotic cat-lickers invading their personal lives. All that do learn this lesson learn it far far too late.

Take this most recent example, a loving veterinarian who tried to save the life of a sick cat from one of their outdoor hoarded TNR colonies. These sociopathic and psychopathic wastes-of-flesh cyber-bullied this caring and loving veterinarian to suicide.

Google for: LOEWS HOTELS FERAL CATS, if people don't believe what these psychotic cat-licking whack-jobs do to everyone on the planet.

Another replay of what these cat-licking cyber-bullying sociopaths do, Google for: CATS VENICE COMPLEX REPRIEVE

A $150 million renovation project for low-income housing, put on hold, jobs lost, money lost, homeless still homeless, court costs and lawyers, just to save a few of their feral vermin c-Rats. And the saddest part of all, the vast majority of these TNR'ed cats had already died heinous inhumane deaths from TNR-practitioners' "humane death by attrition" re-abandonment philosophy. (Road-kill, diseases, parasites, injuries, environmental poisons, cat & animal attacks, exposure, etc.)

Similar scenarios can be found daily and weekly by Googling for feral cats and churches, universities, hospitals, shopping centers, malls, apartment complexes, etc. Cat-lickers delusionally believe that any land on which a cat has stepped-foot is their own property and they can manipulate and control the owners and all laws on it.

This is precisely why everyone is learning to destroy all cats on their properties as quickly and quietly as possible. Telling nobody beforehand about any cats even being there. Long before these psychotic cyber-bullying cat-licker sociopaths and psychopaths get wind of the cats. Shoot (or trap & drown) cats first -- tell no-one later. The only thing worse than feral cats are feral cat-lickers. You can legally shoot the former, not the latter. You need to pay lawyers and courts to get rid of the latter. THEN you can get rid of their cats. And the sad part is, that's EXACTLY what happens, each and every time.

People are wising-up. If ANY cats are around they destroy every last one of them first, before they make any other move. Before these cyber-bullying cat-lickers can do anything about it to try to destroy and waste everyone's lives even more than they already have with their disease-infested invasive-species vermin cats. Not quite the results that these cat-lickers had intended, but that's what they're getting! :-)

Nature Advocate said...

There's that wonderful bliss of self-inflicted ignorance that every person on earth has come to love and know so well about every last one of you waste-of-flesh cat-lickers. Thanks for proving it yet again!!

(What's the matter Micheal? Can't stand that you can't delete nor edit all my posts to manipulate others to your psychotic way of thinking on this commenting section? ROFLMAO!!!)

Destroying cats is neither hating cats nor a fear of cats. I had to LEGALLY shoot and bury literally hundreds of these invasive species vermin to stop them from gutting-alive and skinning-alive the last of the native wildlife on my lands. (true story) Apparently, gutting alive and skinning alive animals with your vermin cats is perfectly acceptable to an animal torturing c_nt like you.

Why do mentally-unbalanced and psychotic cat-advocates always presume that if someone is removing a highly destructive, deadly disease spreading, human-engineered invasive-species from the native habitat to restore it back into natural balance that they must hate that organism? Does someone who destroys Zebra Mussels, Kudzu, African Cichlids, Burmese Pythons, Brown Tree Snakes, or any of the other myriad destructive invasive-species in the USA or elsewhere have some personal problem with that species? (Many of which are escaped PETS that don't even spread any harmful diseases, unlike cats.) Your ignorance and blatant biases are revealed in your declaring that people who destroy cats must somehow hate or fear cats. Nothing could be further from the truth.

It is people who let a destructive invasive-species roam free that tortures-to-death all other wildlife, wasted for their cats' play-toys, that have zero respect for ALL life. They don't even care about their cats dying a slow torturous death from exposure, animal attacks, diseases, starvation, dehydration, becoming road-kill, environmental poisons, etc., and if very very lucky humanely shot to death as that is the MOST humane death that any of your stray cats will ever hope to meet -- you know, the way that ALL your stray cats DIE. You phenomenally ignorant and amoral cat-lickers don't even respect your fellow human being. This speaks more than volumes about your disgusting character. People like you should be locked up in prison for life for your cruelty to all animals, cruelty to your own cats as well as all the native wildlife that you let your cats skin alive or disembowel alive for their and your entertainment. People who let cats roam free are violating every animal-abandonment, animal-neglect, animal-endangerment, and invasive-species law in existence.

If people do hate cats today, have LEARNED to hate cats today, you have nobody but yourself and everyone just like you to blame. YOU are the reason people are now realizing that all excess cats must be destroyed on-site and on-sight. You've done so much to make people care about cats, haven't you. If you want to do something about it, direct your sadly and sorely misplaced energies at those that are causing the problem, not at those who are actually solving it AND HAVE SOLVED IT 100%.

THIS IS YOUR FAULT and THE FAULT OF EVERYONE JUST LIKE YOU. You have NOBODY but yourselves to blame.

You can take that all the way to the very last shot-dead cat's grave.

While it is true that overpopulation of humans is the #1 problem that we and all other species face today (humans are a classified as a "weedy species", but they ARE NOT an "invasive species", please educate your sorry-a**ed bible-home-schooled selves); this still doesn't excuse all the responsible, wise, and intelligent people from stopping all the ecological disasters caused by those phenomenally stupid and criminally negligent people who should have never been born in the very first place.

Cats are a man-made (through selective breeding) invasive species. And as such, cats being a product of man, are no less of a man-made environmental disaster than any oil-spill, radiation-fallout, chemical-spill, or other environmental disaster _caused_by_man_. Cats are not exempt from being removed from every natural environment, wherever and whenever they are found away from supervised confinement. Just as you would destroy Burmese Pythons and African Cichlids in every habitat where they exist in N. America. They started out as pets too. Many of our destructive invasive species pests started out as PETS discarded by criminally-irresponsible humans. Guess what happens to all those other non-native pets that became destructive invasive species? They are destroyed on-site by any means possible -- no questions asked -- none required.

Cats are even worse than a multi-continent-sized oil-spill. They not only kill off rare marine-mammals along all coastlines (just as oil-spills do) from run-off from the land carrying cats' Toxoplasma gondii parasites, they also destroy the complete food-chain in every ecosystem where cats are found. From smallest of prey that is gutted and skinned alive, wasted for cats' tortured play-toys, up to the top predators -- starved to death from cats destroying their ONLY foods. (Precisely what cats caused on my own lands not long ago.) They destroy everything that moves. They will even destroy native vegetation by destroying those animals that are pollinators or act as seed dispersers for those plants (as many rodent and bird species do) or those acting as plants' pest-control. Cats can and will wipe out whole ecosystems -- animal and plant.

Cats need to disappear from all natural habitats PERMANENTLY, eventually, somehow. And the sooner the better. They are breeding out of control at an exponential rate. The reason for "sooner the better" is that you can only hope you can halt the problem before it is beyond the reach of any method you eventually choose. Luckily, I caught the problem in time where I live (by humanely shooting and burying every last cat I saw, hundreds, collared or not, totally LEGAL). I estimate that about 1 returning or 1 never-seen-before native species have been populating my lands PER DAY for the last 4 years since every last cat is gone. That's a LOT of species that cats destroyed or starved-to-death during their 2 decades infestation on my lands. People who have cats around have no idea just how bereft and empty their lives have truly become.

It seems nobody else is faring as well. Their time is being wasted by cat-lickers stopping them from doing the right thing. Asking or listening to any deranged invasive-species advocate for advice on how to clean up the ecological disaster that they created and perpetuate is about as useful as asking your local career thieves for their advice and help to hide your valuables from their daily motives and activities. Ignore anything they might say and you too will solve the problem where you live. They ARE the problem, they cannot be part of the solution. The very moment that cat-lickers, who cause the problem, are cut from the solution-equation it instantly solves itself.

It worked 100% where I live. I've not seen even ONE cat for over 4 years now. (Also totally disproving that cat-lickers' deceptive and manipulative "vacuum effect" lie and myth.)
