Minnesota Town Takes Steps to Control Feral Cats

Minnesota NewsEYOTA, Minn. (AP) – A southeastern Minnesota town is taking steps to control its feral cat population.

The Eyota City Council voted Thursday night to contract with Camp Companion to trap, spay and neuter, and release the feral cats living in the community.

Michelle Quandt with Camp Companion told the council that sterilized feral cats tend to have a closed-herd mentality. The feral population won’t grow through births, and it won’t allow new cats to join its group.

Other options would be to move the cats outside the city or euthanize the cats.

The cost of the program is $60 per female cat and $40 per male cat. Council member Bryan Cornell estimates Eyota has between 20 and 40 cats.

Reports say the city is looking at trapping cats Nov. 29-30.
