Due to the difficulty with getting petitions started up with the Scottish Parliament at the moment, I have made this page of my website available for the purpose of collecting signatures.
The following is a snippet from the licence application.
Any individuals which are obviously feral domestic cats will be dispatched according to standardpredator control practices, by the land manager, with appropriate firearm in one shot withminimal time to death. The Wildcat Project Officer will be notified about such individuals andcadavers will be collected for genetic and veterinary screening, within 3 days. To minimise stress andensure high standards of welfare are in place for individuals assessed as feral domestic cats, dispatchshould occur within the traps as soon as the assessment is made. Feral domestic cats should not beremoved from traps and transported as this may result in unnecessary stress and compromisedwelfare.

This petition is to get this licence cancelled. Instead of shooting the cats, we want to capture and neuter them.
We have until 15th June 2016 to collect 100,000 signatures. I will then send the petition with all the signatures to the Scottish Environment Minister.
Your details will not be used for anything other than the purpose of this petition.
