Stray cat hunting is still legal in Switzerland, thanks to lawmakers' 105 to 59 decision to reject a proposed ban. Hunting supporters argue that cats endanger birds and lizards, and humane control methods such as sterilization are too costly to implement

Once again, this is another petition based on misinformation. It misinterprets the Swiss law and misrepresents what is actually happening (or more correctly, not happening) in Switzerland. I, and a number of Swiss citizens, attempted to explain the situation when Care2 originally posted this article and a petition several weeks ago.

To clarify my earlier comment.... It was generically meant to address the fact that many petitions which appear on Care2, Change.org, ForceChange, and other sites are based on misinformation, misinterpretations, or without knowledge of the full details. For example, the recent petition congratulating Namibia for it's conservation and animal protection policies. A week later, petitions appeared protesting Namibia's massive seal slaughter.
In case anyone should misinterpret or be offended, it was in no meant to reflect in any way on Cher. I hope I've made it obvious that I have nothing but the utmost respect for Cher and the great work that she does. I truly value her friendship.

Thanks Barbara. I did try to discover what the Swiss laws are on cat hunting, but found many petitions. It will take more than a moment to dig in and find the facts about the laws.

The petition is addressed to 'Swiss Law Makers' not much of a target.

If humane control methods such as sterilization are too costly to implement (allegedly) thus cat overpopulation becomes a burden, what to say about human overpopulation? Isn't it a burden as well? Shouldn't then humans be hunted as well as they endanger birds, lizards, elephants, giraffes, lions, chickens, dogs, cats...(I could go on endlessly...)? I wonder...
