    A contest planned for children in New Zealand to hunt and kill feral cats as part of a drive to protect native species has been axed following backlash from the public and animal rights groups.

    The event would have been part of a fundraiser organized by the North Canterbury Hunting Competition for the Rotherham School, located in the Canterbury region of South Island.

    Organizers on Saturday had announced a new junior category for children under 14 in the annual competition ? to hunt feral cats for a top prize of 250 New Zealand dollars ($150).

    How barbaric. Why not work to get programs together to help with neutering and spaying instead of killing innocent animals?

    Here is the stupid organization's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/theNorthCan...ingCompetition

    I knew this couldnt be happening in America because cats are protected under the law.

    WTF New Zealand? And having children murder the cats? So fucked up.
