Animal services introduces feral cat control program

Ack! Someone put a cat enabler in charge! My response to the story:
This TNR plan is supposed to be humane, humane for who? Will it stop the unwanted pets from killing our fauna already pressured by habitat loss and pollution? Many ecologists and biologists estimate feral and roaming cats kill as many as a billion of our native birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and fish each year. This makes the unwanted pets an environmental issue, not an animal welfare one. Finally, the birds and animals of this area are a multi-million dollar tourist attraction, not unwanted pets.
