Our Pet Pest
While we were conducting the Landcare bird survey today with Mrs Daniel, Room 7 saw Louie, the much loved school cat, catch a silver eye. Luckily the little native bird got away, but two others were not so lucky.
Louie has been waiting for silver eyes to go under the neighbour's fruit tree net then easily catching them. Clever hunting but not great for our native birds.
Killing natives?! Does this make Louie and other cats a pest? We will be investgate more about what it means to be pests, native, endemic, or intoduced, next term.
What do you think? Is Louie a pest? Comment below.
