Letters [May 2007]
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, May 2007:
Cats & rabbits
I read with interest the March 2007 ANIMAL PEOPLE article
“When the cat is away,” about the feral rabbit population increasing
tenfold on Macquarie Island since the island feral cats were
exterminated in June 2000.
As a neuter/return volunteer, I have fought extremely hard to change
attitudes towards feral cats in a similar situation locally,
involving Robben Island, where former South African president Nelson
Mandela spent most of the 27 years that he was imprisoned for
opposing apartheid. The situation is dire.
