Politicians, Facebook, Twitter….just say no.

Its the buses that are taking out all the Kiwi. This one has accounted for 75 alone, and the bugger is proud of it too:
Clearly we need to ban all buses to protect our native environment. And don’t get me started on trains – if they are not taking out native species then it’s defenseless women in wheel chairs. Ban them. Read more »
Gareth Morgan has clearly given up on saving penguins. He is intent on spending money on killing cats.
I have found a great investment for him and his Kiwisaver account to invest in:
From first appearances it likes Gareth Morgan is running for Wellington mayor on a platform of “Celia isn’t crazy enough for me” and attacks the SPCA again.
Isn’t it amazing that when local body elections come about all the crazies come out to play:
To deliver on the vision of a predator free New Zealand and a renewal of our native wildlife, let’s start right here in Wellington, by building on the halo created by our own sanctuary Zealandia. This is the challenge Gareth Morgan is setting our city, particularly the citizens of Karori.
Morgan is holding a public meeting in Karori at Allen Ward Hall, Donald St on Wednesday 20 February at 7pm to challenge Karori to become the first ‘confined cat only’ suburb. “This is not just about conservation and saving native species,” Morgan said. “It is about cashing in on our natural capital, making New Zealand a unique, world class place to visit and live in. We can start right here in Karori – Zealandia has already done the hard work, now the rest of us need to step up. As far as I am concerned a confined cat is a pet, all others are pests.” Read more »
The latest episode of Fieldsports Britain is bloody interesting:
It’s not just night vision. Roy Lupton and his friends have found a way of turning night into day. As a result they see a lot more wildlife action than they ever have before, and a lot more foxes to shoot, too. Meanwhile, we’re at the Shooting Show with George Digweed and Andy Crow. And David Taylor visits Peter Wilson and his family at home in Dorset, find out about winning gold at the London 2012 Olympics, about shooting the new Holland & Holland Sporter and we even take time to watch the South Dorset Hunt going past.
The night vision story at the start is real interesting.
This cat, it’s pure evil.
No wonder Gareth Morgan wants them dead. Read more »
Gareth Morgan may be onto something as more evidence emerges of those natural born killers called cats:
For all the adorable images of cats that play the piano, flush the toilet, mew melodiously and find their way back home over hundreds of miles, scientists have identified a shocking new truth: cats are far deadlier than anyone realized.
In a report that scaled up local surveys and pilot studies to national dimensions, scientists from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the Fish and Wildlife Service estimated that domestic cats in the United States — both the pet Fluffies that spend part of the day outdoors and the unnamed strays and ferals that never leave it — kill a median of 2.4 billion birds and 12.3 billion mammals a year, most of them native mammals like shrews, chipmunks and voles rather than introduced pests like the Norway rat.

More readers have sent in photos of their efforts to assist Gareth Morgan in his quest for a cat free New Zealand. Looks like we have earned a fair bit. Here is another $5.00.
Here is the full gallery of cats sent in so far: Read more »
Gareth Morgan is offering a $5 donation to the SPCA for every cat killed:
Environmentalist Gareth Morgan has offered to donate $5 to the SPCA for every homeless cat they put down.
Morgan and SPCA executive president Bob Kerridge have been locked in a war of words after the businessman launched the “Cats to Go” campaign last week, labelling cats as “natural-born killers” and calling for local governments to require registration and micro-chipping of cats, and to eradicate unregistered cats.
In a New Zealand Herald opinion piece, Kerridge called for Morgan to “rethink your tactics and join us to bring about a positive solution by encouraging responsible cat ownership”.
“Why not put your money where your busy mouth is and support us by assisting with the funding of desexing and micro-chipping of every domestic cat in the country. That will make a positive difference, and will free up SPCA funding to add to our bird rescue activities,” Kerridge wrote. Read more »
