Cats killing billions of animals in the US
They've calmed down a LOT since then.
"Reanalysis of the original data after publication using 95% confidence levels resulted in larger ranges for the estimated number of animals killed"
Even stupid cats are brutally efficient hunters.
My cat had a bad habit of bringing mice back that weren't dead (or anywhere near dead really) and just letting them loose in the house. I'm glad he's stopped but worry for the mice.
A cat I used to live with would do this. Slash them open just as I arrived to save the mouse.
It was my fault because I taught the cat to hunt.
