Australia has an estimated 15 million feral cats that each kill around 5 native animals per night. So 75 million of our precious native creatures are being killed every night. Have a read of this article on the ABC website by researcher Euan Ritchie. He has some solutions that include the reintroduction of top predators like the dingo. And remember to keep your domestic cats in at night – as they can do just as much damage as a feral cat.
