Rabbit survey sparks predator debate anew

During the three-meeting series, attendees pounded out some compromises to the existing refuge policy which called for trapping and relocating feral cats, considered the number one threat to the existence of the marsh rabbit, and also resulted in some euthanization of feral raccoons caught in the trapping.

My response awaiting moderation:
Everyone involved should get their priorities in order. The cat organizations show their true colors as cat lovers instead of animal lovers by complicating the removal of cats. It is springtime and litters of rabbits that might ensure the survival of their species are being killed by feral domestic animals that have no place in our ecology. If they were pit bulls they would already have been removed and put to death.
