POLL: Reporting Animal Abuse – What Would You Do?


I recently had this dilemma.  I was surfing the internet, looking for interesting stories

Foster Cats

about cats to share with all of you and came across an article about a town that was trying to eliminate the feral cat population (even though the colony was healthy and being looked after via TNR).  I began reading the comments to see what the people of this town thought, and was horrified when I discovered that some lunatic was bragging, paragraph after lengthy paragraph about how he shoots HUNDREDS of cats on his property and buries them.

You can probably guess what I did… but I’m curious what you might do.  Please share your thoughts.

  1. There’s absolutely NOTHING that they can do, except to annoy and waste the valuable and expensive time of your local law departments and all your fellow tax-payers. Your answers are all wrong. The ONLY correct answer does not exist on your poll.

    The law in the USA is that it is perfectly legal to destroy any animal, someone’s pet or not, that is threatening the health, well-being, and safety of yourself, your family, your animals, or even your property. Also true even in most densely populated cities, firearms laws permitting, if not then 700-1200fps air-rifles are commonly used. The only animals exempt from you taking immediate action, legally, are those listed on endangered or threatened species lists, and any bird species under protection of MBTA (the Migratory Bird Treaty Act). Even then variances can be given should there be sufficient problem but this requires further study by authorities. Since cats are listed in the TOP 40 WORST invasive species of the world in the “Global Invasive Species Database” ( http://www.issg.org/database/species/ecology.asp?si=24&fr=1&sts=sss ), this means they have no protection whatsoever from being shot on sight, they are not on any protected species list anywhere in the world. Quite the opposite as a matter of fact. (This is precisely how I managed to clear out every last one of hundreds of these invasive species vermin cats from my own lands. On the sound advice of the sheriff. Even he found that trying to reason with and warn the cat-lovers did no good. But shooting every last cat finally worked! My lands have been 100% cat-free for over 2 years now, for less than the price of a couple cups of coffee for the ammo costs.)

    Shoot to maim is punishable under the laws that define animal-cruelty (these are the ONLY cases that cat-lovers cite to try to manipulate and scare everyone from shooting their only favorite animal). But shoot to kill is a perfectly legal way to humanely destroy an animal. The same laws and principles that apply to methods of humanely hunting animals also applies to cats. (Hint: outfit your rifle with a good scope and laser-sight, inexpensive on ebay. This will ensure a totally humane, instant, and LEGAL kill each and every time. Though use a fatal chest-shot, a head-shot is not always a sure thing.) Unlike cat-lovers’ psychotic beliefs, the reality is that a cat is just another animal. It’s NOT their baby, their child, their offspring. Even if they do view their cats that way, letting them roam free is no less criminally irresponsible than them telling their child to go play in the freeway and then blaming the cars for their child’s death. If they let their cat roam free, NO MATTER HOW IT DIES, that is THEIR fault and they can be charged with all laws that clearly define animal-neglect, animal-abandonment, and animal-endangerment. Not to mention being in direct violation of all international invasive species laws in existence.

    In fact, here’s a publication from a study done by the University of Nebraska on the best ways to HUMANELY deal with a feral-cat problem wherever you live. This documentation INCLUDES the best firearms, ammo, and air-rifles required to HUMANELY destroy cats. deenawinter.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/ec1781.pdf

    Besides, what difference does it make if the cat gets shot or ran over by a car, attacked by another cat or animal, drowned, or poisoned by plants animals or chemicals (inexpensive 1-adult-strength generic acetaminophen pain-relievers gaining in popularity, for being so species specific). The result is the same. The cause is the same — the fault of the criminally irresponsible pet-owner that let their invasive species pet roam free. They’ve already proved that their animal is 100% expendable. You can either destroy their cat for them humanely, or let their lack of care cause it to inevitably die inhumanely. They don’t care one bit how their cat might cruelly suffer to death if they let it roam free. Humanely destroy their cat for them before that can happen. A well aimed bullet is the MOST humane death that ANY stray or feral cat can ever look forward to. Any other death that they WILL eventually face is all inhumanely downhill from there.

    Have fun with your little self-induced-psychoses poll. 🙂

  2. You might also enjoy knowing …

    If you advocate for cats as rodent-control on farms and ranches you’ve already doomed them to being destroyed by drowning or shooting when it becomes a financial liability more than any asset. Ranchers and farmers worldwide are fully aware that cats’ Toxoplasma gondii parasite can cause the very same birth defects (hydrocephaly and microcephaly), still-births, and miscarriages in their livestock and important wildlife as it can in pregnant women. Consequently, this is also how this cats’ brain-parasite gets into your meats and onto your dinner-tables, from herbivores ingesting this cat-parasites’ oocysts in the soils, transferred to the plants and grains that they eat. Not even washing your hands in bleach will destroy this parasites’ oocysts if you have contracted it from your garden or yard that a cat has defecated in.

    This is why any cats are ROUTINELY destroyed around gestating livestock and wildlife-management areas in the most efficient, humane, and least-expensive method available. Common rural practice everywhere. The risk of financial loss from dead livestock and important native wildlife from an invasive-species cat is far too great to do otherwise. This cats’ parasite is now even killing off rare marine-mammals along all coastal regions from run-off containing this cat-parasites’ oocysts.

    The next time you bite into that whole-grain veggie-muffin or McBurger, you need to just envision biting down on a shot-dead or drowned kitten or cat. For that’s precisely how that food supply got to your mouth — whether you want to face up to it or not. It’s not going to change reality no matter how much you twist your mind away from the truth of your world.

    If you want to blame someone for the drowning and shooting of cats, you need to prosecute yourself — every time you eat.

    • Woodsman – You are entitled to your opinion. I suppose if it’s legal where you live to kill whatever animals you want, then you are breaking no law. Regardless, law or not, I don’t think it would matter to you. It’s up to people to be responsible pet owners by spaying and neutering their pets and keeping them indoors. My problem with your posts is that you seem to take pleasure in destroying life. You gain more credibility if you were able to articulate your position succinctly and without derisive comments. But – I’m a proponent of free speech so c’est la vie.

      • Why do you project the idea that having to shoot and bury hundreds of your cats to be enjoyable in ANY way? This only reveals your own deep, dark, and disturbed thoughts. Having to shoot and bury HUNDREDS of your cats is a nasty job that I don’t wish on ANYONE. Cleaning septic tanks for a couple of seasons would be more fun. Why the f*** do you think I’m so adamant and angry about you useless wastes of flesh releasing your lousy invasive species waste-of-flesh cats to roam free? I don’t look forward to having to shoot any cats ever again! But if you do let more roam free? That’s the choice you’ve left to me. YOUR CHOICE, NOT MINE. NOTHING ELSE WORKS.

        Shooting cats is a serious matter. I never take the life of any animal lightly. I can’t stand to see ANY animal suffer. This is why I took so much precaution to make sure each and every bullet mattered when aimed at a cat. And I’ve never used that rifle for anything BUT shooting cats. They are the ONLY animals that don’t belong on my land. I saw the annihilation of all my wildlife happen over the course of 15 years while trying to reason with local cat-loving morons. It wasn’t until I stopped trying to reason with these demented cat-lovers and just shot their cats, on advice from the sheriff, was the problem finally solved. I didn’t want to, but they left me NO OTHER CHOICE. Even the sheriff gave up trying to reason with them, that’s why he told me to just start shooting every last one of their cats that I find on my property. ALL the local cat-lovers now have NO CATS, ZIP, NADA, because even when they KNEW their cats were being shot to death they STILL let their cats roam free. Don’t go telling me that any of you really care about your pet cat if you let it roam free. I’ve PROVED that you don’t give ONE DAMN when or how they die!

        Now I’m letting others know — no matter HOW MUCH you beg, plead with, try to reason with, or argue with cat-lovers, IT WILL NOT SOLVE THE CAT PROBLEM THAT *THEY* CREATED. YOU *MUST* DESTROY THEIR CATS. IT IS THE *ONLY* SOLUTION. As unpleasant as that task might be, it’s the ONLY one that is left and actually WORKS. 100% guaranteed.

  3. Here you go:

    Now you don’t have to worry about which of the following is the best plan of action …

    Tell no one, do nothing and try to forget?
    Reply back in the comments stating your disapproval?
    Become detective-like and report the abuser to the authorities?
    Tell someone, but ultimately do nothing?
    Call your local SPCA and ask for advice?
    Call your local police station and ask for their assistance?

    Surely you don’t have to do any “detective-like” work to find out where Ted Nugent lives and have him arrested. Do you?

    No. What this means is THERE’S NOT ONE THING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT — BECAUSE IT IS PERFECTLY LEGAL ACROSS THE USA.

    Catching on yet? Fool.

    And here you are, with a perfectly good example to test your theory by approving this post and then seeing if your fellow cat-lovers are pathetic little liars or will really do what they say. But of course you won’t do that. Then THE WHOLE WORLD WILL SEE THAT YOU TOO ARE AN IGNORANT, DECEPTIVE, AND MANIPULATIVE LIAR. LOL

    • You are entitled to your opinion. It’s unfortunate that you are unable to state your opinion without trashing others and being belligerent. There are some that share your opinion and many that share mine.

  4. I’ve been following the person known as “woodsman001” for the last couple of years. “Nature Advocate” is just another of his dozen or more aliases. This creep also has the computer function to make his/her IP address appear to originate from anyplace in the world. He must spend all of his time on the internet looking up every site or news article that has to do with cats because he spews the same disgusting sewage on every site. I would like to know why a major animal rights/ humane society group doesn’t try to investigate this maniac.
