Commentary by Tom Crutchfield with a link to their INCREDIBLE ARTICLE:

The fact is that these invasives are about solely responsible for extirpating the Key Largo Wood Rat and the Cotton Mouse. Folks it's our beloved feline, the wild feral house cat that is THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE INVASIVE ANIMAL ON THE PLANET.
