Wildlifer has a problem with felines:

As long as this Forum seems intent on discussing whether people should be discouraged, or even prevented, from having kids, we might as well also go ahead and touch the real third rail of the environmental movement in America: Cats. 150 Million cats in the US alone kill an estimated 1/2 billion--that's billion with a "B"--wild birds per year...These feral populations need to be exterminated--and this is where true environmentalists clash head-on into animal rights activists.

What do you think? Are cats a major environmental problem, or is Wildlifer overreacting? Join the conversation.
