Wild Cats rome free in Minnesota

Talking with a Minnesota Conservation Officer and he warned me " DO NOT SHOOT ( or kill ) A CAT IN MINNESOTA ". Its a FELONY ... Minnesota dose not have a feral cat law . The PETA have a powerfull loby.

    I'll tell you I've seen plenty of them while out hunting. I'm surprised that would be considered a felony. You would think they want to eliminate them as they would an invasive species, which is pretty much what they are. Even a cute little house cat is a fierce hunter at heart. They hunt with skills we only wish we posessed. They are the result of irresponsible cat owners that don't spay or neuter their pets. I assume most of them are the result of barn cats that breed at will. I don't agree with the law, but I am not a law breaker, so the cats are safe.

    This last winter a wild cat showed up hanging out in the barn and was knocking the mice and pack rats so I started feeding it. I live in a very remote area and it is the first domestic wild cat I have ever seen here.

    Well it is a female as it just had kittens. I have not seen another cat and am blown away about the whole affair. Will get her fixed but don't know what to do about the kittens. If I see any more will shoot them. Don't need domestic cats gone wild roaming around competing for food with the natural wildlife here.

    I checked as best I could online, and I found a few references to it being completely legal to shoot feral cats in Minnesota with no restrictions. Does anybody know the actual legal status?

    I shoot every cat I see that isn't close to dwellings, they are pure hell on wildlife. Always need a barn cat but more than one is one to many!!

    I agree with to many cats. I read in an article that tow cats in four years = 400,000. They need to be controlled.
