Trap, neuter and return program for Canberra’s cats last of its kind in Australia | ABC News

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Trap, neuter and return program for Canberra’s cats last of its kind in Australia | ABC News” – below is their description.

Releasing feral and stray cats into the wild is banned in most of Australia, but in the ACT a program called trap, neuter, return (TNR) is placing them back onto the streets.

Under the practice of TNR, wild cats are trapped, desexed and then released onto the streets to live in “cat colonies”.

In the ACT, those colonies exist in the industrial suburbs of Fyshwick, Hume and Mitchell and are tended to by the Canberra Street Cat Alliance (CSCA), a volunteer organisation.
