It’s an Obama world.
Now the progressive loons want “policy intervention” to protect mice from cats.

A recent study found that cats are killing mice at an astonishing rate.

Anthropogenic threats, such as collisions with man-made structures, vehicles, poisoning and predation by domestic pets, combine to kill billions of wildlife annually. Free-ranging domestic cats have been introduced globally and have contributed to multiple wildlife extinctions on islands. The magnitude of mortality they cause in mainland areas remains speculative, with large-scale estimates based on non-systematic analyses and little consideration of scientific data. Here we conduct a systematic review and quantitatively estimate mortality caused by cats in the United States. We estimate that free-ranging domestic cats kill 1.4–3.7 billion birds and 6.9–20.7 billion mammals annually. Un-owned cats, as opposed to owned pets, cause the majority of this mortality. Our findings suggest that free-ranging cats cause substantially greater wildlife mortality than previously thought and are likely the single greatest source of anthropogenic mortality for US birds and mammals. Scientifically sound conservation and policy intervention is needed to reduce this impact.

And, to think, “mousers” were once valued for their hunting skills.

  1. OMGosh, the ignorance!

  2. I’d like to be protected from Liberal idiocy.

  3. They do kill a lot of birds. It’s open season on cats that stray into my back yard. Cats are tasty snacks for the local owls and coyotes also.

  4. who is using my information on here. First I was MERRI, then Larse, now Flintsone F,

    Heaven only knows what other names they have used. Discrediting my post and acting childish.

    I would like for this stupidity to stop, immediately!

  5. I see that picture and I say “Good kitteh! As soon as you clean up a bit, pettins for you!”

    My God with this and banning D-Con, these people will bring the plague back.

    I’m starting to wonder if the “unintended consequences” of lib behavior really are “unintended” at all.

  6. #4 is not Flinstone F. but that is what the HACKER posted on my information

  7. #6 AND FOR IS ME, Patty, so, everytime I want to post the are changing my info

  8. Flintstone F.

    I would like for this stupidity to stop, immediately!

    And I would like a Proverbs 31:10-31 woman, on my lap, immediately.


  9. my information is being hacked

  10. #8

    This is no joke my information is being hacked, first I was Merri, then Larse, then Flintstone

  11. Jim, something’s WRONG with commenting.

    I just posted a comment, and the “Leave a Reply” section returned…

    Flintstone F.s information was in the Name and Email boxes, not mine, like usual.

    Something is definitely screwy.

    Even Gravatars are useless now, Jim.

    I’m done here if this is not fixed QUICKLY.

  12. #4,6,7,9,10 are Me, Patty. I have been hacked and this person is using the names I mentioned.



    The comment box, when you comment, is being subsequently filled with the very last comment’s Name and Email.


  14. They crap in sand boxes and everyone else’s yards too. Bad cat food killed my cat – maybe it was on purpose. OOOOOOH.

  16. Patty, YOU are not being hacked.

    The Gateway Pundit has been hacked to display the previous commenter’s name and Email address just after you hit “post comment”.

    I’m done here until this is fixed. I don’t care if it takes a year.

    I COULD have your email and Flintstone F.’s. But no, I saw what happened, and re-input my info, deleting yours — there’s this thing called privacy, and this other thing called integrity.

    Both are gone at GP right now, and quite exploitable for those with no integrity.

  17. Since the government has banned rat poison I’m going to breed cats and release them all into the wild. Hundreds. Thousands. The world won’t stop turning if mice and rats go extinct.

  18. My cats must be broke. I have a house cat who goes outside but only kills the odd mouse found in the garage and I assume the house should one breach the perimeter. Plus a half feral who I feed and I believe another feral on occasion. They are all three black so hard to tell apart, especially at night. Yet, the birds eat the hard cat food right out of the bowl and the voles are still plowing up my yard.
