Pennsylvania airport with feral-cat problem announces plans to trap, neuter and release cats
ALLENTOWN, Pa. — An airport in eastern Pennsylvania that is dealing with a feral cat problem has announced plans to trap the felines and send them to a farm -- not euthanize them.
Lehigh Valley International Airport has reached an agreement with the Allentown group No Nonsense Neutering.
The Morning Call of Allentown reports the airport plans to have the cats trapped, spayed or neutered and then sent to a farm.
Animal lovers were upset last month when the airport said it would consider killing the cats.
Martha Kahan, president of No Nonsense Neutering, says the new agreement is a "win-win."
On Saturday, she trapped three of the cats and she says she plans to keep trapping them until she gets them all.
