Australian Town to Cull Feral Cat Colony


Kill them! Kill them all!
STRATHFIELD Council has decided to put down the colony of feral cats in Homebush's Powell St, despite strong opposition from animal rights activists.

At last Tuesday's meeting, the council voted unanimously in favour of a one-off cull of the stray colony.

A spokesman for Strathfield Council said the cats would be killed by injection.

"For the protection of people and other animals that frequent the area, the feral cats will be caught and euthanased humanely, consistent with section 32 of the Companion Animals Act 1998," the spokesman said.
