Now that’s a big cat *NSFCL Not safe for cat lovers

A reader of The Wild sent through a video of a feral cat he shot being measured for the Morgan Score. The cat was a menace, a real chook killer.

I shot the cat on our rural property in Totara North in the Far North, its the fifth cat I’ve shot in the last 12 months but first one we have measured, had a much bigger ginger tom six months ago, I shot it with my trusty Norinco JW15 22, it had been killing our chickens and wouldn’t go in a trap.

**WARNING: Video that cat lovers may find distressing of a dead feral cat is over the break


Nose to Tail Length: 81cm
Tail Length: 30cm
Girth: 35cm
Tom Cat Bonus: 10cm
81cm + 30cm + 35cm + 10cm  156cm

The cat weighed 3.96kg

That is a real good score, and taken with a .22lr as well. Excellent work, well done.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.
