Feral cats escape ban (In Cape May)

Why, oh why would these people choose to take half-hearted measures with a feral domestic predator threatening endangered birds?

"Feral cats escape ban

Cape May City Council delayed voting on a beach-management plan Feb. 19, 2008, that would remove feral cats from the water's edge in order to protect endangered birds.

The ban was proposed after City Council found out the state might not contribute its 35 percent share of the costs for beach replenishment projects if the felines remain on the beach.

City Council eventually voted to allow the cats to stay on the beach, but declared they must be fenced in. It would be necessary for some cats to be removed, Deputy Mayor Niels Favre said at the time, but no cats would be euthanized."
