Best Friends Animal Advocacy Center has informed us that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has plans to show people how to stop TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release). The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service claims that stray cats are a danger to birds and advocates killing strays instead.
On November 5, 2011 the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will present a workshop at the Wildlife Society Animal Conference in Waikoloa, Hawaii. It’s purpose is training people how to protest TNR.
What won’t be told are the facts – TNR saves lives, taxpayer money and reduces the feral cat population humanely.
In communities that support and encourage TNR, community cat populations decline over time and in communities that practice old school catch-and-kill methods, community cat populations rise or remain unchanged at the expense of thousands of shelter deaths, including people’s pets, funded by taxpayers’ dollars.
Please go to the Best Friends Animal Society Action Alerts online and sign up to protect cats.
