Bird lover kills cat. Charged with crime.
A well known bird watcher went to trial today for killing what he considered a feral cat. The cat was preying on rare birds in the Galveston area. Apparently it was being fed by a worker manning an area bridge. This man claims he owned the cat because he was feeding it, and the cat's killer in essence murdered a pet.
I personally think charging this well intentioned man is a farce. I'd be interested in hearing some other opinions.
Here's a link to an article with some more background.
