On The Prowl
I am fascinated by the diverse and unique animals that inhabit Australia. I am also alarmed at the rate of mammal extinction.
Threatened Species Commissioner Gregory Andrews said “feral cats are the single biggest threat to our native animals, and have already directly driven into extinction 20 out of 30 mammals lost.”
The Australian Wildlife Conservancy estimates that each feral cat kills between five and 30 animals a day. It says taking the lower figure in that range and multiplying it by a "conservative population estimate" of 15 million feral cats gives a minimum estimate of 75 million native animals killed daily by feral cats.
