Newly amended TNR ordinance will require careful monitoring of feral cats by colony caregivers — 2 Comments

  1. Sorry, what current research is demonstrating is that stray/feral cat populations grow more rapidly under TNR than if the cats weren’t neutered–or FED–at all.

    ANY organism’s population growth rate is predicated on its food supply. The so-called “vacuum effect” doesn’t apply to artificial aggregations of animals subsidized by food. As long as there’s food, the cats will continue to arrive.

    The other problem is that despite all the lies promulgated by TNR charlatans, throughout the US and Canada they have only acheived an average sterilization rate of 1% (rane 0.7%-3.7%) annually for the last 28 years.

    This utterly worthless–indeed devastatingly destructive–program enable cats to exist at densities far beyond the carrying capacity of any natural predator. This is, in turn, the single best recipe for zoonotic disease outbreaks.

  2. Great to see an intelligent and humane response that benefits the lives of the feral cats.
