    貓在西元前 2000 年(Serpell 1988, 在 Colemanet al.1997, 在 Brickner 2003)左右第一個被在埃及養馴而且在西元 300 年之前帶給英國藉由了羅馬人。歐洲殖民者在全球各地引入他們。(Coleman et al.1997, 在 Brickner 2003) 由於貓在我們的社會中時常被當作寵物,當他們已經成為本土野生生物的威脅時,就產生如何處理他們的道德困境。 Brickner(2003)指出,動物權利組織譴責,單在英國,九百萬隻貓殺死二億七千五百萬隻動物。(Woods et al. in press) 此物種的管理顯然地有兩種相當不同的情形,依據貓的狀態而定:一是被馴養的家庭的寵物,另一個是已經變野生,沒有主人餵養保護。

    當一隻貓是寵物,有很多方法幫助避免帶給野生生物的危害。 Brickner(2003)建議晚上把貓關在室內、綁一個鈴、幫貓結紮以及給小貓玩具。 然而,一些調查結果顯示,並不確定這些行動是否有正面的結果。 Barrette(1998)發現幫貓綁一個鈴,對捕捉獵物數量,沒有顯著的影響, 然而 Ruxton et al.(2002)發現幫貓綁一個鈴,減少獵物遞送率大約 50% 。(在 Brickner 2003) 森林, 麥當勞與哈利斯(2003)發現,被貓帶回家的鳥類與爬蟲類數目,在吃鳥的家庭中顯著地比較低。 當貓被綁上鈴,或者晚上把貓關在室內時,每隻貓帶回的哺乳動物的數目比較低,然而,當晚上把貓關在室內時時,被貓帶回家的爬蟲類數目較多。 此結果產生一個主觀的選擇,究竟保護爬蟲類與保護哺乳動物哪一個比較重要。 顯然地,如果被捕捉的哺乳動物是被引入種,例如老鼠,這又產生另一個困境。

    在第二個情形,當一隻貓是野生的並且威脅野生生物,使用較嚴厲的方法控制貓似乎合乎情理。 在 1992 年,澳洲國會通過瀕臨絕種動物保護行動法案,使國家有義務提供一個威脅緩和計劃(TAP),針對每個表列的脅迫程序,包括野生的貓(Brickner 2003). 野生貓TAP的關鍵目的是:根除島上的野貓,避免威脅易受傷害的本土動物; 阻止野貓入侵新島嶼,避免可能對本土社群的威脅; 促使受到野貓威脅的物種恢復生機:改善貓控制方法的效力與人性化,與增加野生貓對本土動物衝擊的理解。 為了吸引較多的野貓被陷捕與餌誘,視覺餌(例如羽毛與生棉)的使用與吸引物(例如鮪魚油)現在正在被測試。 野貓對本土野生生物的衝擊正在澳洲的各種不同地區被研究為了它量化的資料(Brickner 2003).

            摘要: The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species provides taxonomic, conservation status and distribution information on taxa that have been globally evaluated using the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria. This system is designed to determine the relative risk of extinction, and the main purpose of the IUCN Red List is to catalogue and highlight those taxa that are facing a higher risk of global extinction (i.e. those listed as Critically Endangered, Endangered and Vulnerable). The IUCN Red List also includes information on taxa that are categorized as Extinct or Extinct in the Wild; on taxa that cannot be evaluated because of insufficient information (i.e. are Data Deficient); and on taxa that are either close to meeting the threatened thresholds or that would be threatened were it not for an ongoing taxon-specific conservation programme (i.e. are Near Threatened).
