Bird extermination enablers and how to spot them.

I am often amazed at the ability of some animal lovers to adore one species of animal while remaining oblivious to the welfare of others. This is seldom more frustrating to me than when exhibited by the more rabid of the cat fanciers.
I have pointed out to them numerous times the damage roaming and feral cats do to our native fauna. I support this, when needed, with quotes and estimates from ecologists and biologists with unimpeachable credentials.
The cat enablers sometimes rationalize this with the explanation they use trap, neuter, and release (to kill hundreds more birds). They are in essence ensuring the feral cat will spend less time breeding and more time killing our native fauna! Can you say enablers?
