To the editor:
There were articles in the Beacon recently about a puppy mill case. One mentioned new laws for breeders to stop puppy mills. The other article was about the outcome of this recent case.
What did they get for so many counts of animal abuse? A fine and probation. Not much of a message being sent to others in the business. Let’s not make new laws until we start enforcing current laws on animal abuse and cruelty.
On feral cats: Some of us are not cat fans. I think it is commendablesomeone wants to take in stray cats. I just think they should do it in their homes. This week’s Beacon states feral cats will be released and cared for on private property.
Please do a follow-up article explaining how the cats are trained to stay on that person’s private property. Maybe I can enroll a local cat that seems to like to sleep on top of my car. Although I never pet the cat it also brings me trophies like a mockingbird and more recently a cardinal. It has never left me a rat.
According to Wikipedia a feral cat is born in the wild or (is) the offspring of a domestic cat that has returned to the wild, not the case here because of the spay/neuter program. Let’s call them what they are, stray/abandoned cats. And trust me they will stray.
