Prevent massacre of feral cats in Australia

Stop the poisoning of feral cats announced by the Australian government. Explore humane solutions to the problem of overpopulation of feral cats and the damage they cause to Australia's indigenous mammal species.

Why is this important?

On July 16, 2015, the Australian government unveiled its plan to kill two million feral cats by 2020. While the problem they are targeting is real and serious (scientists say that they are a primary factor behind the extinction of at least 29 indigenous mammal species in Australia), the solution of poisioning the cats is barbaric to say the least. Efforts should be made to find a more humane solution, working with animal rights advocates, agencies, shelters, and rescues to spay/neuter and adopt out those that are healthy and spare as many as possible from a horrible death. This holocaust should be stopped.
