Shooting Cats: Australia’s War on Feral Cats
WARNING: This video contains graphic content.
In Shooting Cats, VICE set out to explore the consequences of Australia’s feral cat plague, and confront the uncomfortable and violent realities of dealing with it. Most suburban Australians give feral cats little thought. But for residents of the country’s rural fringes, they’re a diabolical pest and scourge on wildlife. Found in 99 percent of Australia, they’re estimated to kill more than two million native animals a day. That devastation has seen Kangaroo Island local Barry Green declare a personal war against cats; trapping and skinning them, before turning them into hats and fridge magnets.

Try 70 million per day. Your figures are wrong
+Kj 1250 There is no difference between doing that to a sheep rabbit or cat. they are all animals.
+song writer You clearly don’t know anything about Australia. Most rodent species are endangered and severely threatened by the depredation from foxes, cats and feral dogs
+calamagrostis88 Exactly!! but the pansies seem to think that killing a cat is ‘inexcusable’ …..you know whats inexcusable? letting cats hunt species to extinction. cats are never going to die out, they need to be culled. end of the story
it TOLERATE don’t I
Tbh I heard 1 dog can kill 500 native species in a week Including cats. Sigh as usual……”white people”! 😂
i know there is certain things you have to do, but it breaks my heart knowing cats being kill 🙁
