Gareth Morgan still hates pussy

It is official, Gareth Morgan is not into pussy in any way, shape or form.  Who knows, maybe he was terrified by one as an infant but KiwiBank must be moving quickly to rebrand the under-performing fund they overpaid for.

I have a name suggestion for them, how about “KiwiBank Saver?” I can even do up a logo because at the rate Morgan’s mouth is going, I seriously doubt you will have many customers left.

But proving Morgan must have a taste for public sadomasochism, he has popped up on that soft cock Campbell Live last night.  This time Morgan unleashed his much vaunted phase II master stroke; a $5 bounty on each cat.

If the SPCA are clever, they should send him a bill for every cat they have to euthanize. As you all know I don’t much like cats but I don’t like animal abusers either.  I can see Morgan’s brainless idea unleashing fruitcakes claiming the bounty. This will get nasty since it comes from a desperate mad nasty little man who cannot deduce ‘cause’ from ‘effect’. 

Yet is Morgan right?  Are cats the mortal threat to our indigenous biodiversity?

I took a deep, deep breath and consulted the high priestess of the environment, none other than Dr Jan Wright herself.  This is what she had to say on the subject:

“There are a number of mammals that threaten our native ecosystems – possums, deer, wild pigs, rats, feral cats and stoats to name a few. However, in terms of forests there are three that consistently feature on the ‘most wanted’ list – possums, rats and stoats.”

Given rats and mice don’t like pussy either, Morgan’s way will turn our forests into Valentines at the first sitting for them.  Gareth Morgan, feeder of Orca, killer of cats and Phoenix cheerleader must be King Rat.

    Looks like Morgan’s cat site has been hacked:

      Go the Cats!
      Its quite obvious that Gareth’s mouth has disconnected from his brain. Tackle the humans if protecting our clean, green image is the issue. Or is that too hard?

      Classic!

    Now lets see what he can do with the Hurricanes.

    Actually, thinking about it, if the security to his website was that porous, I mean this was not an attack by Anonymous, would you seriously trust him with your money?

      In latest news apparently not a hack, just similarly named website.

    I think you will find that with most predator/prey systems a prey population can only support a given number of predators once the system is in equilibrium. Eliminating the apex predator will see a period of adjustment where the prey increase until the predator population catches up, it will then oscillate a bit until equilibrium is again achieved. Stupid TNR policies cause more harm to the eqilibrium as they take out an apex predator of the cats, Man.

    What do people think of his claim that the SPCA catch stray cats, de-sex them then re-release them back into the wild?

    If that is true then he has a point as stray cats are becoming an increasing problem in many areas.

    And he seemed to make it clear he wasnt after the pet cats per se….so not quite as nutty as what I thought. Though the emphasis on confining cats to your property – while fair enough as they do seem to acquire large territories & upset gardens – is unrealistic for many homes as most are not your 1/4 acre section perfectly flat fenced off backyard.

    His comments are dangerous and very irresponsible. He is just an attention seeking idiot who seems to want to be the animal ‘Hitler’ of New Zealand (complete with a stupid looking moustache.) I think he should be prosecuted for encouraging violence and murder of animals. We do not want a pet holocaust. He would be better spending his money of speach therapy so he doesn’t sound a little bit ‘special’ on TV!

    His comments are dangerous and completely irresponsible….and untrue. Encouraging violence and mass murder. Does he want to be New Zealand’s ‘Hitler’ actually offering paying for animals to be killed. (Complete with stupid lokking moustache!) Does he want a cat holocaust? He must have too much money and not very much to think about if this is his greatest concern. Maybe his money would be better spent on some speech therapy so he doesn’t sound a litlle bit ‘special’ on TV!
