Textdealing with the topic of feral cats

Of all of the wild animals I have dealtwith, trapped feral cats can be the most ferocious! They claw, bite,hiss, emit a nasty musk scent, and do anything to escape. I`ve seenferals scale a ten foot wall. They`re not to be trifled with. When Icapture cats I bring them to the humane society in the county.

[…]

Every now and then I get an angry emailfrom a cat lover for advocating the trapping and removal (andpossible future euthanasia at the animal shelter) of stray cats. Somepeople advocate spay-neuter-release plans. I`ve heard mixed argumentsregarding this method. Here is one of the angry letters that I`vereceived:

I was extremely disappointed when I readwhat you wrote about feral cats on your website. You are givingpeople inaccurate information about how to properly control theirpopulation. The WORST thing you can do is trap and remove them. Allthat does is remove their scent and allow new cats to come into theterritory. The BEST thing you can do is get them fixed and releasethem back where they were found.

If you need accurate information to puton your site that will actually educate people properly, I will beglad to give it to you.

If you don`t, but would like to educateyourself, please go to this site: www.alleycat.org

Also, I sincerely doubt you bring thesetrapped feral cats to any Humane Society. You bring them to AnimalControl (kill shelters).
