Obviously they weren't doing that great of a job. Isn't several years enough time to capture and euthanize 50-80 cats? Since Aubudon and Riparian people captured 26 in a month.Tough_Boots wrote:part of an organization that has been dealing with these cats for years
We already did. A Preserve devoid of Burrowing Owls. Burrowing owls nest in the ground, which makes them an easy targets for Housecats.Tough_Boots wrote:I'd love to see what happens when a feral house cat tries to take on an owl.

Audubon is donating the traps and people. Arizona Fish and Game said they wouldn't release any new species into the preserve until the cats were under control and the birders need their eye-candy.autumnstars wrote:Now, I imagine they are paying some person or some group to do the removal
Yep, because Domesticated House Cats i.e. the species we are talking about is a totally natural species. Evolved totally without the hand of man, natural selection made them extra cute, saves them from predators.Tough_Boots wrote:We're dealing with a totally synthetic view of nature here
Yep dude, its all a huge Riparian Preserve conspiracy, my bet is Obama is behind it all. He hates cats.Tough_Boots wrote:but this is all speculation since the preserve is not into dialogue and communication.
By all means sir, get rid of the Red Eared Sliders and Bullfrogs.Tough_Boots wrote:The fish are not a native species and either are turtles
Again, another apparently unrelated rant. The Preserve has 3 staff members, I would wager that 2 of three barely make 30k a year, and that the Preserve Director isn't exactly raking it in. No one at the Preserve or in Desert Rivers Aubudon has any "power". Which is why there are still cats at the preserve, "Save the Cats" threw a fit when the Preserve Director tried to get rid of the cats outright, and so they had to stop and wait while "Save the cats" does another half-baked attempt at trapping the cats.Tough_Boots wrote:I just get tired of mediocrity by those with power. I would assume that getting rid of the feral cats and the lack of communication by the preserve has a lot to do with the affluence and ability to organize of the Desert Rivers Audubon and the effect that it has over some salaried preserve positions.
