Wilkes-Barr ends their feral cat program. Traps appear to have already been set to trap then kill cats who come into the shelter. — 7 Comments

  1. The cats are not so much the problem. The cats are merely a ‘symptom’ of a much bigger problem. ‘People’ are the problem!! People who neglect to spay/neuter their pets and/or the cat colonies they feed.

    We’ve become such a disposable society in that if something is not convenient we just dispose of it or worse kill it, like that will solve the stupid people problem.

    Seems like a no brainer…Trap/kill, aka as a revolving door, at ttax-payer expense which will never be a solution as the vacuum effect will come into play or allow volunteers to TNR which is a ‘proven, long-term, solution’ to cat over-population when done correctly.

    It would seem perhaps city officials and/or whoever else is involved have not done their due diligence when it comes to research. The TNR approach has become mainstream because it works! And there are plenty of successful examples out there without having to look to hard. For example, The Boardwalk Cats Project in Atlantic City. Hopefully Alley Cat Allies will get involved to help save the innocent animals born through no fault of their own.

  2. This is horrible and uncalled for! Yes you will be killing family pets. What is wrong with you? It’s so easy to spay and neuter and live in harmony. I’m sickened!!
