Minneapolis council to vote on feral cat law

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minneapolis City Council committee is recommending a new ordinance that essentially licenses the care and feeding of feral cats.

The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/18QSwSk ) reports five members of the council’s public safety committee voted unanimously Wednesday to endorse the new law. The full City Council is expected to vote on the ordinance next week.

The plan would allow Minneapolis residents to establish cat “colonies” where stray and feral cats can be fed, vaccinated, neutered and identified.

Supporters say the program is the best way to manage feral cats. But bird lovers say house cats shouldn’t be allowed to roam outdoors and kill small mammals and birds.
