Not really. Feral cats are a serious ecological problem. Extermination makes sense.

These problems are the fault of humans. Many of these diseases would be preventable if humans properly cared for their dogs, took them to the vet to get them their shots. And when a dog attacks a human unprovoked, it's typically because the dog was raised to be aggressive.

If a dog is raised right, the chances of it hurting someone who doesn't deserve it is very low. And you can be sure that people who get mauled by a dog because they antagonized the dog don't admit that they brought it on themselves, which artificially inflates the dog attack statistics.

Aye. Humans keeping dogs, that's the problem.

Who should take the feral canines to the vet to get their shots?
Also, lyssaviruses predate humanity.

And when a dog attacks a human unprovoked, it's typically because the dog was raised to be aggressive.

Or maybe because it was allowed to grow to begin with.

If a dog is raised right, the chances of it hurting someone who doesn't deserve it is very low.

"Deserve", "right". Weasel words detected.
"Very low". How much? Sources please.

Also, still higher than if dogs were just completely exterminated, as our lovely canine-loving OP suggests we should do with cats.

And you can be sure that people who get mauled by a dog because they antagonized the dog don't admit that they brought it on themselves, which artificially inflates the dog attack statistics.

I think this is called "blame shifting" and "I don't have a source for my claims", isn't it?

Been there, done that, as well as a thread on exterminating all dogs.
Cannibalism

I've never seen it, but it might have happened.
Human slavery?

Oh, that gets advocated for all the time. We've had threads on it.
The possibilities are endless.

Welcome to NSG.


Somebody I think actually did advocate for cannibalism on here.

Killing feral cats is not even remotely similar to genociding all humans.

For one thing Cats are much cuter.

Alright look here. I’m as much an animal lover as the next guy, but let’s not act like that applying what is a common form of environmental managment, or even the consumption of dog flesh, is on par with human slavery, canibalism, or the alt right. Honestly it makes your already damn shaken positions fucking laughable.

The slippery slope argument is bad but then again NSG is a living example of it, so why not?

Dog eating and cannibalism can also be sugarcoated as "environmental management".

I actually rather like cats,

But I also like a plethora of other creatures ( Im rather fond of bird watching IRL ), and cats have become extreme threats to the wild life in nearly every environment where they have been placed. The cat population and their roaming habits need to be drastically regulated in order to protect the environment.

It may come as a shock to most people, but cats are on par with, and in some areas even more dangerous than, humans in terms of environmental destruction. Cats are, but definition, an invasive species everywhere they are present, with the exception of Egypt ( their original ecosystem ). To give a scope of just how destructive cats are to our ecosystem, here are some facts: In 2013, it was estimated that cats killed between 1.3 - 4 billion birds annually, as well as between 6.3-22.3 billion mammals annually ( With the most conservative of estimates, cats kill more birds each year then every hunter in the world combined ); cats have been confirmed to have killed at least 33 species, and are a primary threat to another 36 endangered species; cats are known to spread disease, notably the Toxoplasma gondii parasite, which has killed not only millions of animals but even has begun to affect humans as well; It's not simply feral cats who are to blame for these rash of killings either, with even pets reported to be killing around 2 animals per week, with feral cats killing even more.



It's not a popular opinion, on account of the affection with which the general population views cats with, but it may prove necessary to actively start regulating the cat population so as to mitigate their effect upon the environment ( particularly feral cats ). TNR, trap-neuter-return, is being used by a number of communities in order to mitigate their feral cat population via sterilization. TNR has hadmixed results, with many researchers expressing doubts as to it's effectiveness on account of needing to sterilize around 75% of the population in order for any program to be effective. Some have suggested mandates to keep felines inside during night time, fines for abandoning cats, the legalization of eating cats, legal protection against suits for cats killed on private property, legalization of drowning kittens, legalization of cat traps, and even active campaigns to exterminate feral cats.

What do y'all think should be done about the biological menace this is the cat?

Personally, I am all for feline death squads. Cats are an incredibly invasive species everywhere they go, and their effect upon the local ecosystem needs to be curved by limiting their numbers and when they can go outdoors. I am all for the proactive measures listed above.


what about dogs?


Dogs are no where near as environmentally destructive as dogs
