Letter threatening to trap neighbourhood cats in Canberra prompts RSPCA warning against vigilantism




When Beth Morrison arrived home from work yesterday evening, she was shocked to find an anonymous letter dropped in her mailbox, warning her to “lock up your cats”, or else “say goodbye”.

Dear neighbour, your home is within 400m from my home where there is clear evidence of a cat(s) killing our native birds. I have set traps. Please lock up your cat day and night, permanently.

Your neighbour……”
