Want to know how to mercilessly kill a cat? Don’t worry about having to search the weirdo part of the Internet. The weirdoes are now writing opinion pieces for the Orlando Sentinel! This week, the Florida newspaper published an op-ed from Ted Williams, who was editor-at-large for Audubon Magazine when the article went live but has since seemingly been demoted to “independent journalist” (according to a newly revised byline).

But the TNR lobby has blocked its registration for this use. The other is trap and euthanize.” That’s right … Ted Williams of the National Audubon Society lets you in on a nifty method for killing cats! In a major American city newspaper, he told you how to commit a felony. I only hope you’re as shocked and outraged as we are. Poisoning animals is expressly prohibited in many states, and in most states intentionally killing a domestic animal is a felony. Now, if you follow the op-ed link above, you’ll notice the paragraph we quote is missing. Since the article went live on the Orlando Sentinel’s website, the offending paragraph has been deleted. But don’t worry, courtesy of Peter J. Wolf of the blog Vox Felina, we have a copy of the original op-ed (click here to download the .pdf). Clearly someone...
