No sympathy from Gareth Morgan over cats killed in his name



It appears people are getting Gareth’s message and starting their own cat eradication programmes in their own neighbourhoods.  It has the cat fanciers understandably upset.

Gareth Morgan’s confused by the recent antics of cat advocates in the Bay of Islands.

Cat lovers in Paihia have been outraged by photos on Facebook of cats caught in a number of traps.

The group believes Gareth Morgan is to blame, following his spate of calls to get rid of stray felines.

This follows the story of the people in Northland sorting out their cat problems citing Gareth Morgan as their spiritual leader.

Don’t expect him to have any sympathy though.

“We catch a possum in a trap, do we think that that’s cruel? Then catch a wandering cat in that same trap and apparently it’s cruel so some people have a very distorted view of what cruelty is.”

Gareth Morgan plans to bring in a new campaign for Wellington that would let native wildlife flourish in specific areas around the capital that would be pest-free.

Morgan’s campaign is essentially licensing cat haters to get out there and lay waste to the neighbourhood cat populations under the guise of helping out Gareth.

If this continues, this is going to put the SPCA and Forest and Bird up as arch enemies.

And the way Gareth is going?  This is only the start of the nationwide cat cull – sanctioned or otherwise.
