Recently I attended an animal welfare conference and met several people active in ABC (animal birth control) programs. On one occassion I got into a debate on the use of humane traps for stray/feral cats. I believe that because it is a "trap" the animal should be moved to a proper carrier or cage as soon as it is trapped. However, the persons I was talking to, used their traps not only to catch the cat, but after the S/N surgery the cat was kept there to recover and also used as transport for release. Granted their traps were a bit larger than the average so the cat has room to stretch. But still... to me a trap is a trap. What do you think?
