Walla Walla tries to get at feral cat problem

Unfixed felines are banned from prowling outdoors here under a kitty curfew aimed at curbing the feral cat population.
The curfew, enacted last month by the City Council, applies to cats 4 months and older. It also prohibits leaving pet food outdoors overnight.
Violators can be fined up to $500, and three citations could lead to a larger fine or even jail time, City Attorney Tim Donaldson said. The city's animal control officer also can seize at-large cats, he said.

That's good news. I wish more towns would implement programs such as these. Every little bit helps!

Yes, some places are facing the truth. 60,000,000 or so to go.
