I don't see a major issue with it personally. Just another way of controlling an over population issue. Feral cats are not pets, they can carry diseases, they breed incessantly, they're not friendly, and they're an overall nuissance. In communities where people trap, spay/neuter, and return them that's GREAT and I think that's a great way to control the population, but unfortunately most communities are not going to be dedicated to doing that.

I think that aritcle is full of crap. The bird lovers are upset? Seriously??

Its rediculous really, most of those feral cats are outside become some one threw them out, or didnt spay their cat and left the kittens out to wander. Killing them is not the answer. if that was in my town, I would be all up in it. There is no way I would allow that to happen.

My Bob was a feral cat brought in one winter night. He has such a personality and is the most precious cat Ive ever come across.

If the cat is a problem, then yes I would say perhaps he should be put down, but the way the article is worded, they will kill any stray cat around. Which means if someones outdoor cat is out lurking, they could possibly be killed, tags or not.

Its not right at all.
