There is, as you know, a constant battle between TNR advocates and those we disagree with the practice. It is said that some veterinarians who provide free or discounted services in sterilising feral cats under TNR programs may themselves be ostracised or criticised by fellow veterinarians. In addition, there are those who say that in Florida volunteers who are engaged in TNR may be in violation of existing laws which protects wildlife leaving them open to criminal charges, as I understand it. On balance, however, TNR is winning out over the detractors because city and county administrators in America understand that there is currently no better or more humane method of managing and stabilising feral cat numbers within their jurisdiction.
