New Zealand Environmental Activist Wants to Ban Cats as Pets
New Zealand is home to great natural beauty and wildlife, and economist Gareth Morgan has launched a campaign to keep it thriving. One of the pillars of his campaign? Making sure that the cat you own will be your last.
"That little ball of fluff you own is a natural born killer," he writes. "Every year cats in New Zealand destroy our native wildlife. The fact is that cats have to go if we really care about our environment." His campaign is called Cats to Go.
Cats to Go aims to slowly phase out the cat population through effective neutering and a mandatory cat registry.
