New Zealand Environmentalist Wants All Cats Off The Island

An environmentalist in New Zealand is dead serious about banning cats on the island.  According to the article from the AP, Gareth Morgan claims cats have killed off several species of native birds in the country.

Morgan set up a website called Cats to Go that encourages people to make their current cat their last.  He does not advocate for euthanasia, and would rather that the cats be neutered. He also wants to see cats kept indoors and a mandatory registry created.

 ”That little ball of fluff you own is a natural born killer,” he writes. “Every year cats in New Zealand destroy our native wildlife. The fact is that cats have to go if we really care about our environment.”

Here’s the problem, 48 percent of the households in New Zealand have at least one cat, which is higher than any other developed country.  (The United States is at 33 percent)  Needless to say he’s got some strong opposition… and he might have to deal with this guy.
