Patent of Horror

I've been browsing birdfeeder-related patents recently for a secret project, and came across this appalling horror of a patent. A device that captures songbirds and conveys them to a waiting cat! This depraved inventor should burn in hell!

It seems to be old, and hopefully forgotten about. I've never seen one for sale, so thats a good thing. Nowadays with animal rights activists such as ourselves, things things stay off the market.

I had to read this patent of horror 3 times before I could assimilate the fact that someone would actually do this!! I certainly hope that the US patent department has some standards!! I am SICK at the thought of this actually receiving a patent, but HORRIFIED to think that someone has made a prototype!!!!!

I highly doubt any patent of this type would ever come to pass. All birds are protected under U.S. laws(except maybe House Sparrows and European Starlings)so this product would be illegal; our birds are safe. Thank goodness for wildlife protection laws!

That looks like a really nice bird trap! Even if I can't find one of these for sale, I'm sure I can build one pretty easily, as I am pretty handy.
