Did any birdos see that program on A Current Affair last Thursday night 29th, regarding a new law in NSW commencing March 2002.  I missed the start but the new law gives the Sporting Shooters Association of NSW permits (cost I think $50) to go into public lands, National Parks (?), Forest Parks and private property to shoot any feral animal including CATS, YES CATS.   The shooters will be trained in identification to ensure that they do not shoot natural wildlife.  Of course the Cat Society featured in the program expressing their disguist at the destruction and cruelty of cats; however the wildlife officer told the Cat Lady had she seen the cruelty done by cats; that cats had been responsible for the destruction of several mammal species and as the cat had no natural enemy that  species will continue to disappear.   The cat hater (I think his name is ....Walmsley, who wears a cat wig and owns a sanctuary which is feee of cats also featured on the program.   This is great news and hope it spreads to other states.    The cats will be good target practice for the Sporting Shooters..
