Gareth Morgan has said two sensible things today. First he smashed up the anti-progress green taliban and now he is smashing up the SPCA.

Bird breeder Gavin Wilkinson who humanely trapped a wandering cat that was killing his chickens, is to be applauded for destroying the cat, (See this 3 News Article?http://goo.gl/qKTmR?).

We have a terrible hole in our legislation around wandering pets that do damage to our wildlife, destroy other people?s pets when they invade, and spread disease. The SPCA?s stance on defending the rights of cats to wander, kill, and spread disease is inexcusable and those truly concerned about cruelty need to demand that the SPCA returns to its core business ? preventing cruelty, not championing Bob Kerridge and his unconditional love affair with cats.

On this matter of wandering cats causing mayhem, politicians are showing their normal cowardice and need to stand up and acknowledge that the law is an ass, people are having to take matters into their own hands and destroy cats that are out of control. 90% of cat owners are totally responsible and acknowledge their cats should be confined, but the 10% who are not, together with Bob Kerridge and this sad SPCA outfit need to be called to order. Their behaviour is not acceptable in a country that values private property rights and the rights of our wildlife not to be slaughtered. If these politicians don?t stand up and be counted then of course vigilante-type action will increase. It is a direct result of political negligence.? Read more »

You read it here first, now the SPCA are outraged

The other day I blogged about a guy who had found a good use for a cat. He was selling its skin on Trade Me.

Now, predictably, someone, the SPCA is outraged by it.

The SPCA says it’s disgusted by a man’s decision to kill a cat, skin it and list it on Trade Me.

The seller says he shot the cat humanely after he saw it killing chickens on his property, but the SPCA says the man could face prosecution.

Bird breeder Gavin Wilkinson says the cat was responsible for killing 10 of his birds, so he trapped it and shot it in the head.

“This one was taking my baby chickens, probably about two a day, day after day,” he says. “I watched it and made sure it was a feral cat, and I put the cage out there and caught him.”? Read more »
