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.

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'
