Comments on: Study provides data on feral cats on Mauna Kea http://www.hawaii.edu/malamalama/2010/10/feral-cats/ The magazine of the University of Hawai'i System Thu, 06 Sep 2012 21:11:28 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8.1 By: Elepaio http://www.hawaii.edu/malamalama/2010/10/feral-cats/#comment-89827 Sat, 15 Jan 2011 00:54:46 +0000 http://www.hawaii.edu/malamalama/?p=6339#comment-89827 Cats are predators, they aren’t going to stop hunting if they are neutered! AND what about our native forests and birds? Is it not MORE cruel to watch a species go extinct when you could’ve done something about it? (I don’t think cats will go extinct anytime soon) YES the biggest contributor to native species decline is man, we introduced cats so we should do something about our mistakes. And while the poor innocent kitties didn’t ask to be put in the forests neither did the native birdies ask for the kitties! Come on People, what about our fragile native ecosystems?

A TNR (trap/neuter/release) program has been shown to be much more effective than attempted eradication, which never works. Someone already took the time to trap these cats (and hopefully neuter them, unless they were just murdered after being examined) – just keep going.

but humans can do no wrong, so we have to blame something else…
how about blame another victim! Cats! These cats dont choose to live where they do… they are forced into doing what they must to just survive, put into these situations because of man…
Stop blaming and hurting victims and start finding a way to help all!
