It seems that Animal Control of Howard County call themselves "Animal Advocates", which seems to be far from the truth - at least when it comes to feral cats in managed colonies. Animal Control in Howard County, Maryland states that it kills all

signed and noted. There should be no feral cats. Full stop!! I am sick and tired of people just chucking cats out into the bush and letting them go wild! I have four feral cats at the moment that I have taken in and tamed. ( Well, my son and his girlfriend share the care of two of them.) and have cared for countless others, over the years,Here in Australia, there are some wonderful people who capture the feral cats and find hundreds of homes for them. Even if they are fed, they still do immeasurable damage to the wildlife, if they are living out in the bush, but they do have a right to life, like every other animal. The problem needs to be solved holistically. Why are people abandoning their cats and kittens in the first place? Often through being unable to pay for their care. If governments would help people on low incomes,with the cost of sterilizing their animals in the first place and helping with vets incredibly high bills, people might not be so tempted to abandon them.

What kind of a solution is KILLING. You made & did not resolve the problem (spay/neuter) and you KILL the cats as the solution?!?

I have maintained a colony of ferals for years now that have been fixed & I have had 0 new kittens this year & found homes for the ones last year. Now my colony is no longer reproducing & the ones that are here now will live our their sadly short but natural lives.

The idea of my ferals being killed is beyond my comprehension. I call them my outdoor pets.
