I'm doing my bit, ever since one killed two of my ferrets they have become an endangered species around here.

If you're out in the bush & see a cat, shoot it first before anything else.
They put a terrible strain on any native species.

This is something I do without a second thought. I have lost one deer and several pigs doing this but have no regrets about it.

My personal score on cats is 98 to date
I maintain 3 cat traps on the property and when I do get one they always receive 2- 22 shorts in the back of the head and on to the burning pile
This past week I have got 5. A mother and 4 of her half grown kittens.
I will most likely get to a century before any English batsman on this current tour.

Plenty of feral moggies have fallen to the .308 on pig-culling operations, no way I could remember the count, but I do remember one with the Fat Lady (.577 Light Nitro double.) Several with the .400 Jeffery double as well.

Turns them into a hand-puppet.

In my circle, feral cats are worth double points!

here in central europe feral cats are rare, sometime I have cats in the trap but allways let them go because the traps standing close to houses and they belong to them and geting in by curiosity.

I wouldn't know how many I've killed over the years, but it's definitely in the hundreds.
We used to have a heap on the farm, I've seen a big tom take down a full sized wallaby, they are bloody great killers, shot some absolute monsters too, if they were bla k then stories about panthers are easy to understand.

There is no war on feral cats in Australia. Feral is a woke convenient expression. Feral or pet they are all killers. The answer to cat predetation is to remove them from the towns and city’s and work outwards. This will never happen. I might mention I love killing cats.

We used to shoot farm cats when I was a young man. Bunny season was over 28th of February and the woodchucks weren't up until mid April, so nothing else to shoot.
The Ontario game regs said "It is the duty of all licensed hunters to eradicate any domestic carnivore found more than 500yards from an out-building".
We used to drive the concession roads in the country and shoot all cats we found in the fields. We used semi-auto .22's & longer range shooting was not a problem. I'm sure some of them were at or close to 200yards from us.
Warren, my hunting buddy and farmer, used to maintain 17 cats on his farm. If there were more than that, they would start hunting away from the barn, thus he maintained that number and allowed no more.
He was loathe to allow cats hunting anything other than mice and/or rats in his own barn.
There was not a feral cat problem in South Western Ontario - could be now, though - I've been gone for many decades.

I'm not too worried about stray cats on the farm. Saw two different ones recently. Might be neighbours cats or feral. They help keep rats and mice down in the sheds.

Young GSP Donder didn't see them. The cats can shelter in the deer paddocks from him.
