Hi Trish Ive sent a readers entry for Bird Table news. Song and Garden Bird survival…
A real dilemma and threat for our precious wild, garden and erbon birds.
Between April and August every year during bird nesting season, thousands of baby and fledgling birds ,are slaughtered needlessly by pet cats…
Instinctively pet cats hunt and decimate nest sights, not for food but purely out of primeval play… How about giving these birds genuine protection ?
If a conservation act was to be implemented to remove the threat from pet cats , say …May to August .This would give these birds,the opportunity to nest and reproduce more safely.
This would mean some kind of forced temporary encarsoration. By the owner of the cat or registered cat pound. This would dramatically help and protect birds , in their struggle…
I do agree with this idea. I believe that in Australia cats are not allowed out.
What do you think?
