Does this cat killer really like cats?
Accused cat killer says he likes the animals Chron.com - Houston Chronicle, Nov. 16, 2006, (link): GALVESTON —
"It has come across in articles that I hate cats and that's just not true," Stevenson said in an interview at his home today. "I actually like cats in the house. I have friends I visit and I play with their cats in my lap."
Ornithologist Jim Stevenson won't say how many feral cats he has shot since he moved to Galveston a decade ago but acknowledges "it's a lot fewer than the number of birds I've saved. cat+killer Animals Birds News Crime Pets+and+Animals Cats travel+and+places travel Photos
Stevenson, 53, is charged with animal cruelty in the shooting death of a cat near the San Luis Pass Bridge at the far west end of Galveston Island on Nov. 8."
I've been so busy with Mema in the hospital that I haven't had much time to read ya'all's blogs.
Jim I've actually talked to several avid pheasant hunters in my lifetime who have told me they shoot every wild cat they come across. It's to protect the nesting. I've never done that thinking they also kill mice and rats.
I read the article about the cat shooter. Shame on him! And shooting near toll booths from his car?? Sounds like he might be sorta on the whacko list to me.
