Target: Australian Environment Minister Greg Hunt

Goal: Don’t unnecessarily murder two million feral cats.

Australia recently announced a plan to kill two million feral cats in the country because they are “harmful,” despite the fact that animal rights groups say this won’t do much to help.

The Australian Environment Minister claims the cats will be killed humanely, but is there really a way to murder innocent animals who are just trying to survive? French actress Brigitte Bardot condemned the minister’s plan in an open letter, saying, “This animal genocide is inhumane and ridiculous. In addition to being cruel, killing these cats is absolutely useless since the rest of them will keep breeding.”

Bardot said the money set to murder innocent animals would be better used to sterilize them and decrease the population in that nonviolent way. The government plans to shoot and poison the animals.

Considering feral cats stem from domesticated cats who became wild, sterilization seems much more fair. These animals didn’t ask to be abandoned from their homes and forced to survive in the wild. Tell Australian Environment Minister Greg Hunt to not unnecessarily murder two million feral cats and instead consider more humane options.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Australian Environment Minister Greg Hunt,

You recently announced a plan to kill two million feral cats in the country who it says are harming native species, despite the fact that animal rights groups say this won’t do much to help. You claim the cats will be killed humanely, but is there really a way to murder innocent animals who are just trying to survive?

I agree with Brigitte Bardot that the money set to murder innocent animals would be better used to sterilize them and decrease the population in that nonviolent way rather than your plan to shoot and poison the animals.

Considering feral cats stem from domesticated cats who became wild, sterilization seems much more fair. These animals didn’t ask to be abandoned from their homes and forced to survive in the wild. I urge you to not unnecessarily murder 2 million feral cats and instead consider more humane options.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    • Thanks for dropping by and caring about this issue. Perhaps if we could collectively shame the Aussie gov’t, they would change their inhumane policies toward animals. These barbaric public officials are far worse than any criminal, they’re mass murdering mindlessly to fulfill a policy- which is not even a long term solution. Protesting will hopefully make them aware they are not doing the right thing and they do not have the support and consent of the people. Shame on you Environment Minister of Australia!

    For a huge animal lover, and especially cat lover such as myself, this is terrible to hear!
    I recently fostered an abandoned cat, whom I called Lola and her 5 kittens, until we were able to find nice homes for all of them. This is a beautiful story. I will eventually have it in print, together with lots of pics!

    Please sign the petition and spread the word. Thanks so much!

    • Thanks so much Lada, we need to reach critical mass from protests to stop the misguided slaughter of innocent animals.
      I personally look forward to reading about Lola cat’s positive experience.
      Many blessings! ❤
