Cat the ripper

If you are a towhee, wren or ground-loving sparrow, this could be the last face you ever see. And it's not friendly; it's lethal.

A new study by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute doesn’t pussy-foot around the topic: Cats kill birds. Mass slaughter. In the U.S. alone, tabbies are responsible for the deaths of up to 3.7 billion birds every year. That's 3,700,000,000!

So, keep your kitty safe, well-fed and...indoors.

NBC's Brian Williams reports: Cats are murderers.

Why people let their cats roam around wild is beyond me! I love cats, but they are so destructive to wildlife, especially birds!
