Last night ABC’s 20/20 aired a sensational segment about outdoor cats and wildlife predation, but ignored the species with the greatest impact on wildlife: people.

20/20 aired the segment without first checking the facts and did not bother to turn to cat experts for fairness, balance or truth. It also ignored the massive scientific evidence pointing to people as the true cause of wildlife decline, with the greatest impacts caused by habitat loss, pollution, and urban sprawl.

Instead, 20/20 turned to the American Bird Conservancy for comment, even though this group’s propaganda and distortions have been roundly criticized.
