link dropping ?

make a bit more effort
Link dropping is when someone does it in the middle of a thread as a way of trying to prove their point or spamming the thread, not when the owner of the site does it to introduce articles for discussion.
We would prefer if they did it according to the posted forum guidelines, but since it's their forum they can do it however they want.

We see these rats all the time in Jeppestown, usually when someone has drive over one.
They are the size of small cats.

No sympathy. You are scared of your own ****ing shadow and believe cats are bad luck. Killing the rats's natural enemy has led to this.
And no matter how many times you educate talk and offer help people are just stuck in a backwards believe that cats are evil.
Let the rats make you sick. I have no sympathy

It's simple
TNR. Trap neuter release cats.
Much easier to Sterilize a cat than a rat.
Stop living like pigs.


Even owls were seen as evil.
You can not win with people who do not want to be educated.

Interesting to note that this is ostensibly due the " ...abundance of food in the city...", yet the city is plagued with traffic light beggars / smash 'n grab spotters.

The report stated that the rats are becoming bigger and smarter, and a record 661g “Ratzilla” was recently caught by a rat expert in the city.
That's a big boy -- the size of a baby chicken, and certainly a viable alternative protein source to feed the masses, only problem is that they bring the rest of the food chain with them -pestilence like ticks and fleas, and unwanted predators such as snakes.

A bit of shisanjama spice, and you've got yum.

People think cats are evil? Thought this only applied to black cats. Lol. People own cats for rodent control where I come from. Even black cats! I learned something new today.
