The impending Taranaki cat cull

Queensland feral cat cull

A death threat against neighbourhood cats – hand-delivered to letterboxes – has left residents of a quiet North Taranaki cul-de-sac on high alert

Typed and distributed by an unknown person, the residents of Becklands Pl in Inglewood found the note on Sunday morning.

Short and to the point, it said: “Cat Poison will be laid around Becklands Place next week and every week until the stray cats are brought under control. Please ensure your cats don’t stray from your property”.

All cats stray from their owners’ properties.

Fellow Becklands Pl resident Rebecca Farquhar agreed and said the discovery of the note had been a “little bit disturbing.”

The Farquhars don’t even have a cat, but they do own a small dog.

“We’ve never had any issues with stray cats, or any cats, on the property. It’s very strange,” Farquhar said.

The Farquhars have no cat, but do own a small dog.
