Cat 'killer' has Bendigo outraged
A Bendigo resident claiming to be killing wandering cats has the community up in arms.
Around three weeks ago a sign appeared on a community notice board warning cat owners their pets would be destroyed if they came onto that person's property.
*Scroll down to hear Neil Mitchell's editorial and talkback callers*
In response, the Bendigo Animal Welfare and Community Services group called on the person to contact the ranger instead.
But President Debbie Edwards says a subsequent notice showed the person had no intention of doing that.

My 8 yr old son recently lost an eye from pikcing up a cat that was in the street. The owner admitted the cat "didn't like people and even he couldn't pick it up" I have since found out it is illegal in my shire to have cats out AT ALL. they need to be confined at all times and it is legal to place cat traps in your own yard. My 8 yr old has had 3 eye surgeries and 3 months of unbelievable trauma. But apparently I can't do a thing about it. Sad thing is if it were a dog there would have been a public outcry by now and the dog destroyed.There are 8 children in my street. I'll be doing exactly the same thing from now on. Look after your cats people. They cause serious harm and carry the nastiest diseases.Just because you love them doesn't mean everyone else does.Bec Monday 19 March, 2012 - 12:20 AM
3AW should do the right thing and give the police the contact details for all those who have posted comments here confirming that they are breaking the law. There is up to $60,000 in fines and jail time waiting for anyone convicted of animal cruelty. Lesser fines for less serious charges. Shame on all of you.Millyse Thursday 19 January, 2012 - 12:10 PM
Starting to think I have no choice but to do the same as this fellow and if I do I just wont advertise it. Have had a gutful of cats spraying my door and scratching my car. Cant even let my kids play in their sandpit until my wife or I sift it for cat turds first. I googled cat traps and they are easy to get and are a drop door type that wont harm the cat. What you do with it after you catch it is up to you. Kill it sure, just please dont dump it in the bush. If some selfish people who have no consideration for other peoples rights lose their pet, so be it. Shame the cat has to pay the price as its not their fault but if word gets around this guys campaign has been effective hasnt it? Good onya buddy!!Kev Wednesday 18 January, 2012 - 8:11 AM
I've been doing the same thing in Glenroy for the past ten years. Got 143 last year and that was a quiet one. Out of the trap and into the chest freezer, jobs done. One or two in each garbage bin every week.
I'm not the only one, our 'mens shed' must account for hundreds and hundreds every year. Hate to think what the place would be like without our help.Ted Wednesday 18 January, 2012 - 7:36 AM
If anyone knows who this person is, please contact the council & most importantly the police. This behaviour is not only illegal, it is sociopathic & must be stopped.Lindsay Wednesday 18 January, 2012 - 7:13 AM
