Take responsibility for your pets. Domestic cats are not natural predators for wildlife. To help prevent your cat or dog from hunting birds and other wildlife:
- Keep your cat indoors.
- If you must let your cat outside, be aware of when the birds are most active in your yard and avoid letting the cat out during that time.
- If you have an outside cat, remove bird feeders from your yard so as not to attract the birds to certain death.
- Keep your dog in a fenced yard, on a leash or under voice command when it is outside.
