I too have had problems with cats on my property eating wildlife and my pets. Recently lost most of my good racing pigeons. I can empathise with you!
In terms of trapping difficult to trap cats, I suggest getting three small square bales of hay (straw or whatever is cheapest) place a bale over each side of the trap and then the third over the top. This creates a dark and natural tunnel that cats seem to feel secure in. I have had it work.
As cats are so visual and are drawn to the live animals, I have toyed with the idea of making a cat proof cage for a sparrow or mouse etc to be placed at the back end of the above design, it would be pretty stressful on the trapped animal but as long as it was safe from the cat, that is better than it being torn to shreds.
Hope this is helpful.

I was more arguing against the drowning and poisoning. Instant death is a more 'preferable' option when compared to a slow, terrifying and painful death.
Thanks for the laughs everybody...
It's funny though, because in the same breath..
I would deem a heavy impact from a 2 tonne piece of metal traveling 40 kph to be humane.
Hardly 'necessary' if you ask me.

Our ideas of right and wrong are simply social constructions, a cat (or any other animal) cannot be expected to adhere to these.
As beings of so called 'advanced intelligence', we should.

You try to make "funny" comments and try to make others look stupid - but you're about as funny as a peice of cat *****. Seriously, grow a brain and comment when you have something valuble to say.
I feel sorry for your mother.------------O< SSSssssssss
