Letter: Problem with Arrants cat problem column
Placeholder Image
In response to Josh Arrants’ column, “The Impact of Cats,” I was disappointed to read he calls cats “one of the worst ecological disasters I’ve ever seen.” The study he referenced in his article by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has been questioned for its accuracy and reliability since it was first released. The problems with this study are it was a review of previously published studies (some decades old) and all with varying range, size, scope and geography.
