The Putnam County Department of Health is now coordinating efforts to trap, neuter, vaccinate and release feral cats to reduce the number of rabies cases in the suburbs.

All this goes back to owners who think that just having a couple of litters of cute kittens doesn’t hurt anyone. We have almost 5 million animals killed in shelters every year and many more strays living on the streets. … If you have an animal you owe it to the animal and the public to have it spayed or neutered. There are clinics that offer these services at a lower cost. The taxpayers are the ones that have to pick up the tab to fix these problems and the animals pay the ultimate price.”

‘Trap-and-return is the most enlightened response.’ This sounds like a warm and friendly solution to the problem, but in reality these animals need to be trapped re-vaccinated every few years. A simpler solution is to put these animals down. Sounds cruel but the world is not a warm and fuzzy place. Sometimes harsh (I use this word loosely) actions need to be taken.”
