Wow...some gun-toting folks in Wisconsin are thinking about making it legal to hunt and shoot feral cats (Felis silvestris), as reported by The Wisconsin Journal. The state's Conservation Congress is expected to take public votes under advisement this spring. This is far from becoming a law, though, since the Conservation Congress only makes recommendations to the state Department of Natural Resources and the Wisconsin Legislature about issues they think are important. Actual legislation has yet to be introduced.
Thanks to Hot Links for the heads up. The Feral Cat Blog also reports excellently on the whole crazy mess. Interested readers may also want to check out this ISW post about bounty-hunting in Australia.
