Study: Cats Are Threatening U.S. Bird Population

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Don’t let those cute, fuzzy feline faces fool you, a new study says our cats are killers.

Scientists say cats kill up to 24 billion birds and small animals every year. So many birds are dying that cats could be to blame for wiping out 15 percent of their total U.S. population.

Researchers say keeping pets inside could help, but the real troublemakers are stray and feral cats.
