The president says nothing as feral cats terrorize and overtake Australia — an American ally and the homeland of my cattle dog ancestors.
BRISBANE, Australia — A gang of feral cats “the size of dogs” has been terrorizing a neighborhood in the Australian city of Brisbane for more than a year, the City South News reported Thursday.
Residents in the suburb of Moorooka say they have been scratched, bitten, hissed at and intimidated several times by the feral felines.
Marlene Jans was taking her five-month-old fox terrier for a walk last Monday when two of the huge cats attacked.
“I was crossing the road, it was dark and I couldn’t see them,” Jans said. “Then, bam! One came at my dog, one came at me. One was biting my leg. I went for my dog because she was screaming.
“I had to kick them away. I was really scared and I was dripping blood.”
