    One of my former near neighbours (melanoma, about ten years ago) once told me that he shot one of these in his front paddock and put a picture of the kill in the window of his shop, with appropriate comment.

    Turns out it was someone's cat - and he ended up having to shut up shop and move (small town).

    Not so long ago we were out spotlighting,and i was looking at a rabbit through the scope on the .22,getting ready to have a shot.
    It wasn't far away,i would guess around 20M.
    Suddenly a wild cat appeared and grabbed the rabbit by the neck.

    One shot and the bullet went through both the skulls.

    This was on a large rural property western Qld,the cats are generally quite small,but will take a large rabbit anytime.

    Yes, relations with our neighbours were a little fraught, so me killing their cat would not have gone down well.

    My neighbour does not like cats and has a cat trap. When cats decide to poo poo in his garden he makes up flyer and letter box drops a note to all the neighbours basically saying your cat has been poo pooing in his garden and he will be setting the trap - any cats caught will be going to the pound - so if your cat goes missing that is where you can find it - pay the fee and get it back.

    It works - all of a sudden there are no cats wandering the neighbourhood - and it is all legal as in suburbia you can trap cats on your own property as long as they are not harmed.

    I once met a bloke who made hats out of wild cats he killed and sold them at markets, so the cat was the hat. He sold a lot of cat hats.

    Yep and then you have the RSPCA after you - these are suburban pets not feral.

    Cats do Not require a licence so if any one of them is being "Problematic" even in suburbia then they are fair game and as long as the trapping and disposal is done "Discreetly" who is to know?
    I Love cats But out here if I see a feral cat on the property I will shoot it without any hesitation whatsoever because of the environmental damage they are capable of

    I would have no problem with well controlled dogs out for walks in NP's.

    Can we ban caravans from NPs instead?

    In an attempt to find a quiet camp site in the high country I drove down a dead end, steep overgrown track, scratched the **** out of the rover, and what do I find at the end....... 5 stonking grey nomad caravans!!

    They had intentionally blocked the track into the camping area with their tugs. So proud of their acheivement, they were settled in for two weeks!

    Ban ban ban!
