    imported pets, in this case cats, are an exotic invasive species in the Pacific Islands, of which New Zealand is one.  Cats have decimated wild bird populations there, as well as lizards, mammals and insects.  In fact many have gone totally extinct from the world, while many others have simply gone extinct from certain islands or archipelagos.
    Of course, pet owners don't want to admit that their precious little paws is, and by extension they themselves are, partly responsible for these extinction events.  
    I myself am in favor of reducing cat populations in the Pacific Islands and in the US, where cats are also decimating wildlife populations.

      there is an odd correlation between folks who like guns and folks who hate wildlife.

      Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.

        i love wildlife and don't love guns at all.  Many hunters love wildlife and work very hard to protect it.  There are some assholes in every group.  Including wildlife lovers.
