This TV3 story shocked me. You would think there would be some laws in place to deal with such people who do horrific things to harmless animals. This New Zealand man, Yopie Alternburg, uses modified possum traps to catch and kill cats in his own backyard.
The Campbell Live interview is here.
I posted this comment to the article:
“For those of you who think this is a right course of action to take. Do you think shooting a harmless dog in the back of the head, while it’s still full of a life, would be a normal thing to do. If anything humans are the pests. We’re the ones who have destroyed most of the wildlife in this country.”
Note that the photo above is of our family cat, Mustang, and he is not in any way connected to the killings.
