Dude, you are so full of sh!t its not even funny. The ASPCA is who says that there are 70 million + feral cats alone... never mind feral dogs. Search for "how many feral cats are in the us" on Google and the ASPCA site is the very first result.

http://www.aspca.org/animal-homelessnes ... statistics

And if cats and dogs are so superior to humans, why are we at the top of the food chain when they have roamed the earth way longer than we have.

And it is so illegal to shoot and kill feral animals that its not even funny. I highly doubt it is happening at pruning levels on a national scale. Just insane to say such a thing.

I can't have a debate or even a convo with someone who flat out lies about stuff and acts like they know everything. Dude, I seriously can't talk to you anymore.


For someone "new" he hasn't gotten the feel for the land. That we're not like other forums, we research this stuff, we're all in involved in some aspects to the subjects we speak upon, and we have low tolerance for foolishness.

This ain't yer "mamma's online forum". HAHAHAHAH :hysterical: :hysterical:

TRY to ignore the 100 million dogs and cats issue, hmm? :-) Why dont' you just admit that you're too cheap and lazy to prep properly, and store food, hmm?

ok, punk, show us where ASPCA says that there's that many WILD dogs and cats. They are nothing of the kind. they may have no human owners, but they'll perish in a couple of weeks without humans providing their food, and no, there aint no 70 million such. There's only 100 million TOTAL and the great majority of them DO have human owners.

Oh Jesus... You have to be the dumbest SOB I never met. I did 100% of the research for you, provided a link to the very agency you claim to have quoted, and you STILL can't figure it out. Its hopeless.

It feels kinda odd when I'm a grandpa, but someone calls me punk. I always felt like that was appropriate for younger folks. Oh well. I guess anyone can be a punk.

truly feral dogs and cats are quite rare. the kind YOU are talking about are feeding off of human garbage.

I wish you were right. Unfortunately, again, I must disagree. My wife and I have been huge supporters of the ASPCA and have been volunteering to help catch, fix and find homes for stray cats and dogs for 3 decades.

Cats are carnivorous predators that enjoy the hunt more than the meal. Sometimes, they will hunt and kill prey and not even eat it. They eat birds, snakes, mice, chipmunks, small rabbits, etc.

Now, dogs on the other hand, they are scavengers when they are alone. They will eat damn near anything. However, they are pack hunters. They will, as a pack, hunt and kill prey as large as 1,000+ lbs.

But none of that matters in a ELE or mass casualty event. Cats and dogs are territorial animals, not nomad or migrant. So, cats and dogs will likely dominate the area they are in such as cities and suburban, with cats being the most successful, not rule the hunting grounds out in the wilderness. That said, their numbers would still be expected to drop due to pack/pride competition and localized competition for food.

You really are not a very smart or friendly person, are you? In my opinion, you seem about 2 IQ points away from being watered twice a week.

Has anyone in your family ever died after saying "Hey ya'll! Watch this!"?

I know I said I was done once before, but I mean it this time. You started with the name calling and insults, and even though I'm clearly better at it, I don't like doing it. So, I'm done. Enjoy your life bud. Be safe.

Hey, has anyone seen Gecko45 lately? I think he did a really nice write-up on this subject a few years ago. Maybe he can post a link.

I think I saw Gecko45 at Lowes, the other day. He was buying a wheelbarrow and some black spray paint.

Lol, TBH was wondering what was so funny when I was snickering at this thread and a couple others, too.

I had to explain that a troll of great wisdom has entered our midst, and was intent upon showing us all the errors of our ways, whether we wanted it or not.

The decorum on this forum is unlike others. Being arrogant, and putting people down is not acceptable behavior.

So your comments are rude, and unnecessary. We SHARE knowledge here. Not "gotcha" moments, and "peacocking".

Just thought someone should tell you.
