A reader emails about Gareth Morgan:
Is Gareth Morgan turning into a Dalek given his call to ‘exterminate’ all moggies?
Given the grand job Gareth is doing at Phoenix FC, if i were a cat, i’d be all a quiver.
When it comes to extermination, Gareth Morgan seems to have fattened up that penguin as an entrée for a lucky orca or a great white shark. Yet while cats are a walking meowing killing machine, local ecologist, John Flux, studied his own cat for 17 years and found out that native birds were in fact, the winners.
Sure there was some collateral damage, but his moggy also took out 221 mice, 63 rats, 35 rabbits, 4 hares and even, a couple of weasels. All animals more destructive than a single indolent cat, unless you are into weasels and rats of course, eh Gareth!
