Missouri Conservation once encouraged shooting feral cats on sight during hunting season, but that's changing across the nation. Abandoning pets is already becoming punishably illegal in some areas, and one day restrictions and pet licensing will be an across the board necessity for conservation of protected species and disease control.

Petshed Petcyclopedia : Human Risk From Cat Worms +_+ ew....
My neighbor is an older veteran in his 80s, and he's pretty old school about handling wildlife. We don't bother him about it. I grew up with my dad killing strays and extra pets as a solution to problems, and even though that is deeply rooted in me, as well, it bothers me that it's a solution to a much bigger problem of people ignoring their responsibilities to dismissed, escaped, neglected, and abandoned pets. How did the solution to rampant cuteness 'ownership' (slavery... think about it) become killing the leftovers?
This could have been a child. Think about it.

Millions of dollars are spent every year trying to round up and care for unclaimed or escaped pets because the original owners weren't responsible enough to prethink pet ownership in the first place. Pets are expensive. If you cannot afford your electric bill, you cannot afford a pet. That's right, we also got city ordinance notices in the mail yesterday over the rise in nonpayment for utilities.
Lawmakers pass bill that penalizes leaving pets outside in extreme weather Oopsie, getting close to jail time now over nonpayment of utilities if you own a pet (but not if you have children or seniors living in your home).

Sorry so mean. Kinda get that way living next door to guns going off at 3 in the morning. For twenty years. Except it hasn't been so bad lately because the guns are getting heavy.
I've gotta go, might get someone showing up for coffee. You never know in these woods. Hope he's had his rabies shot.
