We all have our causes and our pet peeves (pun intended), but a man has taken it one step further and is campaigning to eradicate cats (also known as predators) from New Zealand.
Gareth Morgan, the champion of every bird, mouse, and other fodder for your feline, has a simple dream, a world without avian-ocide. His platform is based on the fact that cats are natural predators and so are aiding in the decrease of one of New Zealand’s national treasures. No, not Lord of the Rings, but its bird population. He’s not saying put your current cat down (at least that’s not his first piece of advice). He has one simple request—have your pets spayed or neutered. Now, if you ask us, he took a line out of Bob Barker’s playbook, but he’s concerned for the birds of the world.
Gareth couldn’t have found a tougher audience as a survey in 2011 showed that 48 percent of New Zealand residents owned at least one cat. So, will you be signing the survey or will you be guarding your cat against the Gareth Morgans of the world?
