Dear Biodiversity Working Group 

Apologies for any cross-postings. Appreciate if you could circulate this to your networks.


Please find link here to the opinion piece: "Roaming domestic cats should be brought to heel", Jon Stanhope. 


News article, Canberra Times page 2, "Stanhope argues for cat containment"

Please note the Canberra Times is running a poll on the issue so please vote as well. At 8.00am 475 people had voted with 60% in favour that domestic cats should be locked up with 40% against. 


General information on cat containment is available on our website.

Please contact me if you have any questions or thoughts.
