Remember the scene in Ghostbusters where the team tries to tell the mayor that a disaster of Biblical proportions was coming? Bill Murray’s character offered his take on it:
…human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together … mass hysteria!
Well, it’s close. In Detroit, at least.
You’re probably heard about reports of packs of dogs running around, possibly as many as 50,000.
But, it’s turned out that cats may be a problem, too. The Detroit Free Press reports that in at least one neighborhood, at least one large cat is stalking the area [notice: link contains auto-start video]. (Tip: Paul Mitchell)
A leader with the neighborhood association where the cat is roaming said several residents have contacted him after seeing the big feline.
“I’m really concerned,” said Vondell Boyer, 55, vice president of the Greenbrier Council. Boyer and other residents said they’re worried that if the cat runs out of rabbits, squirrels and other small critters to eat, it will target small kids.
(Tom) McPhee, (executive director of the World Animal Awareness Society, based in Ann Arbor) who is helping conduct a study of stray dogs in Detroit, said there are about 10-20 stray cats in the city for every stray dog.
See what 51 years of Democrats running things gets you? A disaster of Biblical proportions.
