A Southland community, Omaui, is proposing a ban on all new domestic cats, in the hope of protecting other wildlife in the area.
Biosecurity operations manager Ali Meade said the positive impact on the environment would be huge. Meade said trail cameras record cats and the damage they’re doing to the native flora and fauna.
There would be number of rules and regulations in place to monitor cat ownership in the area. Domestic cats will need to be microchipped and neutered. And once a cat dies, it will not be able to be replaced.
Omaui is located between Invercargill and Bluff.
