Rat Poison Halves Altona Cat Population
After one Altona resident heard that there was a rat problem in the neighbourhood, he laid out a generous amount of poison on his yard. Cats; having the approximate intelligence of a rat, consumed much of this poison, and the number of cats in Altona was consequently halved.
No charges have yet been laid in this incident, but PETA has been closely following the drama with intention to prosecute.
The town of Altona reminds residents to only use arsenic based poisons to keep rodent and feline populations under control.
