Our local paper, the Tampa Tribune, did a huge story today covering feral colonies in our area. There are no less than about 8 of them. They also noted how the local Humane Society has begun a free spay/neuter day on Saturdays for people who capture ferals and want to neuter them before returning them to their environment. There was very little negative press written about those who favor euthanasia for ferals (because of bird populations), and a small bit about people who return ferals to the environment as technically being law breakers because cats aren't a native species in Florida. All in all, it was a great article, giving a lot of useful information on trapping ferals safely and how the vets participating and the Humane Society tag the neutered animals.
