Council pays $10 per cat scalp

I'm all for cat control btw but how could you tell if a cat is feral just by it's scalp. How many sicko's will be in heaven with being paid to mutilate a dead animal. :(

good idea in principle ...
 

Agree, and with the restriction to rural properties it should not impact suburban and pet cats.  Can only hope for long term benefits in attitudes and responsibility.  For the 'how' I don't know - shooting isn't possible everywhere, even rural properties not always suited.  Trapping - what are the options then?  Vets will not take on a trapped feral cat or fox to euthanase.
