Cat-hunting may be legalized in Wisconsin

  1. That's not a typo. Cat hunting? I don't mean lions or wildcats either. They're talking about kittycats. Apparently it's already legal in SD and Minnesota. How freakin' barbaric!

    WHAT THE HELL???!! you know what, that is disgusting that it's legal anywhere. I know they hunt a lot in "deer country" for....DEER. but domesticated cats? I don't agree with that one bit. Will have to tell my Wisconsin-native dh. It's like a license for cruelty and unnecessary violence---- I think it's an outrage ! Yes, Roaming cats are a nuisance, but I would never SHOOT one unless it threatened my family or myself. What is WRONG with people.

    What the @#%^*!! That is one of the most hare-brained ideas I've ever heard of......as if there isn't already enough cruelty in the world as it is. Cats in particular have always been popular targets for people with a mean streak---now it's going to be LEGAL to hunt/torture/kill them? How unbelievably rotten is THAT?!

    I'd say more, but I'm afraid the language I feel like using would violate the TOS, so I'll shut up now. :angryfire :smiley_ab :flamesonb

    This is horrible. Where do people like this come from?

    i think that this is a horrid idea
    the argument is that the cats kill song birds but cats kill and eat when they are hungary
    the worse offenders here are the cat owners who don't spay/neuter and then when they can't find a home for kittens they are thrown out to turn feral

    Cats don't always kill for hunger, though.




    So it would be perfectly legally for someone to shoot my pet cat and call it hunting.

    And then i have permission to tack the hunter's gonads over my fireplace, then, right????

    no doubt, cause if I caught the dirtbag who did that to either of my cats that is what I would be very tempted to do. My cats are indoor cats who are spayed and neutered--- but any cat can get out accidentally. (mine have when the kids forgot to shut my french doors). I always retrieve them as fast as I can.

    Heaven help the dirty pig who hurts one of my babies and is caught by me.

    Isn't that the truth? My cat is also an indoor cat but what if she got out accidentally? It could happen. I can't believe the cruelty of people.

    Sick as it is, a lot of locals around here have already been doing this for as long as they can remember.. "legal" or no. It's never questioned, never even given a thought. When I first moved here, I saw a bunch of local fellas riding around in their pickups on weekends for their weekend thrills.. "cat killins" they call it.. :stone
    Just drive around and try to run over any cat they can find near the road.. someone's pet or not. They could care less.

    Very, very sad.

    People kill cats and dogs all the time.
    What's new is that they want to make it legal in order to control the feral cat population. I am a cat owner and a dog owner and find this propositioin appalling.
    Our humane society is giving away cat's over 12 mos free. Kitten's are 100 bucks d/t the over population.

    That is the most horrible idea I have ever heard. I can't believe that is even up for consideration. What is wrong with people?
