Cat Wars: The Devastating Consequences of a Cuddly Killer

by Peter P. Marra Author and Chris Santella Author

In the late 19th century, a lighthouse keeper arrived at Stephens Island in New Zealand with a cat named Tibbles. Just a year later, the rare Stephens Island Wren, once endemic to the island, was completely extinct. This book surveys the increasing scientific evidence that free-ranging cats are killing machines slaughtering other animals and birds by the billions. Learn about the threat free-ranging cats pose to biodiversity and public health in the United States and around the world.
