Kitties are the biggest killer of birds and mammals tied to us

This ought to ramp up people even more than wolves.

Scientists with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the Fish and Wildlife Service estimated that the median number of birds and mammals killed annually by cats is 2.4 billion and 12.3 billion respectively. They made this shocking assertion in a new study published in the journal Nature Communications.

Cats kills more birds and mammals the scientists said, than auto collisions, pesticides, poisons, or flying into skyscrapers, windmills or planes. These kitties kill more of these animals than any other human-related killers, wrote Peter Marra of the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and Scott R. Loss, and Tom Will of the Fish and Wildlife Service.

They included cats that live in our homes and feral cats in their estimate.

Is it possible?

Sentence 1- No, it won't RAMP UP anyone more than a wolf can RAMP UP someone.

2- Missleading. The study says 2.4 Billion birds killed by cats, not just killed. By Rocks version the TOTAL birds killed in the US is 2.4 Billion.

3- Shocking assertion? No, not really. "Fenwick, President of American Bird Conservancy... [a]conservation organization in the U.S. and a group that has called for action on this issue for many years." The results of 'scientific' studies are now "assertions"?

4. "Cats kills". "Vanna, May I have a comma please?" "Windmills" and "planes" are not even in the article:

5. "These kitties". Google (and the article) says they didn't write that phrase. Only 9 year-old girls, and The Rock, use the term 'these kitties'.

6. "escaped and now feral". So the feral cats born as feral cats were not included? Or all feral cats somehow "escaped"? The people who abandoned their cat(s) are not contributing to the problem according to The Rock.

Is it possible?


Jumps the shark. Unsuccessfully.

Teh kittiez iz feerce!


People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there's something wrong with him.
