Minot Aims to Reduce Feral Cat Population


MINOT, N.D. (AP) — The City of Minot has launched a project to reduce feral cat population through reproductive sterilization.
   The Souris Valley Animal Shelter in Minot received $1,500 in a grant and donations to initiate a program to bring down the city’s wild cat population of 1,200, which are usually in colonies of 15 to 30.
   The project, which is scheduled to begin later this spring, will focus on one colony and trap as many cats as possible in one day. The cats will be released to the colony once they’re sterilized with a notch in their ears to be easily identified.
   After the first colony is completed, the program is planned to reach other nearby colonies until reaching the city limits.
