I am writing in response to the story about a Byron man who killed a cat over killing his 40 chickens.

It is hard to believe that one cat killed all 40 of his chickens, without seeing that video tape. In my experience, a cat will run from a chicken unless it is desperately hungry.

Oh, Max. You have no idea what you're talking about. I've owned cats and I've owned chickens. You would be amazed at how fast a cat can kill multiple chickens. The owner of the cat knew that his cat was killing the chickens, but continued to let it happen. It's a game for the cat. Once the cat knows that the chickens are there and has played the game, it will continue to come back unless restrained by the owner. The cat owner refused to restrain his cat. Therefore, the chicken owner was completely justified in shooting the cat.
