Stray cats on the Ogasawara Islands are being captured and shipped to Honshu to become pets instead of remaining free to prey on the islands' protected native species as the islands are under consideration to become a World Natural Heritage Site.

Hooray a great way to get rid of the problem catch tame and rehome. Well done to the Islands governors for not going for the age old favourite of killing the animals to solve the problem. Great news thank you Naoka.

So nice to hear good news and see a way for government at whatever level to solve a problem rather than kill it.

What a wonderful way to protect both the cats and the birds.It's nice to read a story where the solution is not to kill the "problem" animals.

Well that is refreshing and shocking! Normally people kill the animals while blaming them instead of helping them and saying it is because of humans! I love it!
