The American Bird Conservancy is continuing their ruthless
fight to get TNR banned all across America.
Their most recent stunt is outlined in the press release they just sent out titled "Nation’s Mayors Asked to Stop Spread of Feral Cats". The press release begins with "American Bird Conservancy (ABC),
the nation’s leading bird conservation organization, has called on
the mayors of U.S. cities to stop the epidemic spread of feral cats
that threaten national bird populations as well as scores of other
wildlife. Letters were mailed to mayors of the fifty largest cities in the Unites States, urging they support responsible pet ownership and oppose Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) programs that promote the feeding of outdoor cats." Why isn't the ABC writing letters to US mayors asking them stop building high rises, so that birds don't fly into them and die? Why aren't they writing to farmers, asking them to stop using pesticides that kill birds? It is because cats are easy to vilify, but that does not mean that we have to stand for it. Please, write to everyone, from your local town council to the state government to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife agency, to support TNR as the ONLY effective way to deal with feral cats.
