Roaming cats are killing billions of animals in the US wilderness

| No Comments

A study from Writing in Nature Communications revealed that cats that roam in the wilderness of the US have become increasingly dangerous to wildlife, reported BBC News.

Un-owned cats, which the team of scientists that performed the study defines as "strays, feral, and farm cats," are responsible for the extinction of 33 species, according to BBC News.

There has been a longstanding debate in the US about what to do about the cat killings and the study has now furthered the debate's intensity, reported USA Today. The main species impacted by the un-owned cats is birds, and the most endangered of the bird species are those that are native only to the US.
