A hot topic last election with Gareth Morgan as the former leader of The Opportunities Party was cat control. It’s not getting much attention this election cycle, but it is still a massive problem for our native wildlife - as Bronwyn found out when she spoke to Jessi Morgan from Predator Free, who just so happens to be the daughter of the former TOP leader! Jessi hypothesises why we don't see cats under the target species of the Gorvernment's Predator Free 2050 programme. She concludes that any sucess in targeting feral cats also requires promoting responsible ownership of house cats. 

To gain further insight into the problem posed by cats, Bronwyn also speaks to her grandad, cat-trapper and bird-lover, Alan Wilde.
