Yeah i've heard about that problem,gladly we dont have it here,we got weasel and dog problems. Being attacked by 12 dogs while trying to throw the trash is not a fun experience.. As far as shooting cats goes, i am totally against it,i rather have the Humans that do not sterilize their cats get shot. I live near a mountain and there are a lot of Wildcats (not ferals). My cat came with the property(was about 2 years old) and recently learned that one of her parents was a Wildcat and the other Tabby. She weights 6.5 kg and is no where near fat,just big. She is used to covering a lot of distance and toys look like a joke for her. It is kind of like trying to keep a tiger inhouse.
