Domestic Cat Hunts Young Rabbit



A domestic Cat i.e. someone's pet with a collar has begun hanging around my bird and animal feeding area before dawn and stalking birds and young rabbits. I like cats. It is not the cat's fault, but irresponsible cat owners that are causing the problem in these cases. This is a great use of the night vision game cameras such as the Bushnell brand I use to inventory the creatures around the backyard environment and keep track of developing problems. I'll have to track down the cats owner. Cats let loose like this might be eaten by bigger game that I've spotted with the camera in the same location such as Bobcats, Coyotes, Foxes, Dogs, Bears (perhaps), Owls, Eagles, and big Hawks or get bitten by smaller game such as rats, possums, skunks and raccoons and contract rabies, and/or otherwise get sick or injured, but they are more likely to learn to take advantage of feeding areas and hide, stalk and kill birds and small mammals. Cat's should not be allowed to roam off of their owner's property - and to reduce depredation of birds and small mammals bells can be added to their collars to lessen the chance they will successfully hunt.
