Stray cat rum­pus

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News -

VOL­UN­TEERS tak­ing care of feral cat colonies at De­hesa de Cam­poamor said yesterday (Thurs­day) they were ‘threat­ened’ on Novem­ber 2 and 6 by res­i­dents, who do not agree with hav­ing strays near their homes.

Spokes­woman Ana Hernán­dez said the neigh­bours in­sulted the vol­un­teers and threw away the dry food they put out.

“We had no choice but to ask the lo­cal po­lice for help,” she said. “They told the res­i­dents what we do and why – and that the project is sup­ported by the coun­cil.

“Sev­eral cats were poi­soned a few weeks ago and now we are be­ing threat­ened.”

She high­lighted that the cats keep pests un­der con­trol and vol­un­teers par­tic­i­pate in the cap­ture-neuter-re­lease cam­paigns.
