    I enjoy my steak and eggs or bangers and mash as much as anyone, but some practices are just beyond the pale:

    ... In May, The Intercept reported on a gruesome mass-extermination technique being used by Iowa’s largest pork producer, Iowa Select Farms, to kill large numbers of pigs which were deemed unnecessary and in need of “depopulation” due to the pandemic. The technique, called “ventilation shutdown,” or VSD, involves cutting off the air supply in barns and turning up the heat to intense levels so that “most pigs — though not all — die after hours of suffering from a combination of being suffocated and roasted to death.” The pigs who survive this excruciating ordeal are then shot in the head in the morning by farm employees. A video report produced by The Intercept and the video documentarian Leighton Woodhouse — based on footage obtained inside an Iowa Select barn by DxE as the pigs were slowly dying — was viewed by more than 150,000 people.

    Numerous veterinarians were shocked by the use of this unspeakably cruel and gratuitous mass-extermination tactic, which imposes extreme, protracted suffering on highly intelligent, socially complex, sentient animals. And it created serious problems for the industry, with McDonald’s demanding an explanation it could use publicly, and even discussions — from the National Pork Producers Council — to invent a new, more pleasant and euphemistic name for the extermination technique: ...

    Then how could you control feral cats if you don't kill them? They go crazy and become dangerous if captured. Will they just vanish when the weather warms up? If they are stunned and their teeth and claws extracted it may help.

    Feral cats don't get controlled, it is not their fault they exist, they should not be punished for existing.

    The best way to protect native animals is to remove all cattle and sheep from the country. The meat industry is a disgusting murderous industry and it should end. Let the sheep and cattle live out there natural lives without killing them and when they are gone restore the land to it previous state. Native animals will boom, yes feral cats will kill some but the populations will be so large it will not matter to a large extent.

    AUSTRALIA NEEDS TO BECOME A VEGAN NATION. NO KILLING FOR MEAT, NO EXPLOITATION FOR MILK OR EGGS.

    Meat and animal products are unhealthy, they are bad for the environment and they are only produced using cruelty.

    Reject cruelty, help the environment and if doing it for outside reasons is not enough do it for the selfish reason that you will live a longer healthier life.

    Feral cats threaten the survival of over 100 native species in Australia. They have caused the extinction of some ground-dwelling birds and small to medium-sized mammals. They are a major cause of decline for many land-based endangered animals such as the bilby, bandicoot, bettong and numbat. Many native animals are struggling to survive so reducing the number killed by this introduced predator will allow their populations to grow.

    Feral cats can carry infectious diseases which can be transmitted to native animals, domestic livestock and humans.

    Feral cats are the same species as domestic cats, however they live and reproduce in the wild and survive by hunting or scavenging. They are found all over Australia in all habitats, including forests, woodlands, grasslands, wetlands and arid areas. The map illustrates the estimated abundance of feral cats across the country.
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    I think you owe an apology to the species that cats have wiped out.

    Lets be clear, CATS ARE JUST KILLING BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THEY DO. It is not wrong, it is right for them.

    It is ****head humans who brought foreign animals into these shores who are at FAULT.

    KILLING the CATS is just wrong

    Instead we can do things to help the native animals survive. Giving them habitat by banning cows and sheep from this continent will give them space to grow population size and withstand the feral cat population.

    KILLING SHOULD NEVER BE AN OPTION, Protect LIFE, LIVE FOR LIFE

    So stray cats can multiply forever and wipe out endangered species forever. Unbelievable. I assume the same goes for wild dogs. When farmers and environmentalists agree on something as they do on these issues then you have no chance.

    What the **** gives you the right to take life from a cat? Are you a god?

    Cats evolved like we did, they just ended up in a different place. They are just as evolved as you and me, they are just as special as humans. DO NOT KILL THEM, LOVE ANIMALS, EVERY ANIMAL.

    Humans have breed hopeless animals who cannot survive in the wild. Those species need to be phased out of Australia. Not killed, just not breed any more.

    Ban the breeding and importation of cats, dogs, sheep, cattle, pigs, goats, llamas, foreign fish and whatever I have missed out on listing.

    Without these animals in Australia nature can recover and native animals will LIVE and PROSPER.

    AUSTRALIA NEEDS TO BE A VEGAN NATION. NO KILLING ANIMALS, JUST GROWING PLANTS

    The hopeless creatures such as ground parrots were bred by God so stray cats could wipe them out but humans can't wipe the wild cats out because we are not God. The biggest in the cat family even wipe out humans but we can't return the favour? Funny world we live in.

    During a drought I saw dogs wipe out stray cats - did they enjoy the meal. Because dogs hunt in groups individual cats had no chance.

    There is no god, we are all here due to chance.

    Death is never the solution.

    Lion kills human it know no better, humans should know better and not kill lion.

    Lions eat meat, it is the only thing they can eat. That is how they evolved

    Humans are not designed to eat meat specifically. Humans can do well with no meat.
