Off-baseball: What the @$#!?

Look out Wisc. cats!

From the Associated Press article:

Residents in 72 counties were asked whether free-roaming cats — including any domestic cat that isn't under the owner's direct control or any cat without a collar — should be listed as an unprotected species. If listed as so, the cats could be hunted. [. . .]

La Crosse firefighter Mark Smith, 48, helped spearhead the cat-hunting proposal. He wants Wisconsin to declare free-roaming wild cats an unprotected species, just like skunks or gophers. Anyone with a
small-game license could shoot the cats at will.


At the very least, if Wisconsinites are allowed to kill cats, they should be required to club 'em with sticks.

Comments:
Problem with that is... THEY'RE NOT WILD. They're more than likely abandoned pets, which makes this a doubly disgusting situation.
 
I agree. As someone who just helped rescue and find homes for seven cats that could no longer be cared for by a family member, it makes me wonder what makes some people tick.
 
That's some good eatin'
