"Friendly neighborhood serial killers"

Gerry Mullany, reporting for the International Herald Tribune:

Gareth Morgan, an economist and environmentalist, says that the cat is actually a “friendly neighborhood serial killer” when it comes to birds, and his Web site suggests that New Zealanders should gradually reduce the local feline population by having all cats neutered, and that when cats die, their owners should not replace them.

I’m guessing Morgan will be receiving a lot of unfriendly mail, and not because he’s misstating any facts.
