Tourists in France are being warned about a feral cat problem that has turned violent.
CNN's Erin Burnett reports in the OutFront OutTake.
This seems very strange to me. I have been working with feral cats since the 1970s and since 1990 have spayed/ neutered over 30,000. Two things spring to mind: they were guarding litters of kittens or they had rabies. Would be good to follow up on this. Trap-neuter-return programs (which include rabies shots) have become a way to control/reduce feral cat numbers and in the United States alone over one million have been sterilized. This has reduced the number of cats being killed in shelters and also had an effect on the numbers of feral cats out there, reducing and stablizing these numbers as well. Catch-and-kill does not work as more cats will fill the vacuum and breed back to the same numbers as before, or even add to that number.
