Euthanasia Numbers Climb as Population of Feral Cats Increase

Directors at Osceola County Animal Control say irresponsible pet owners are partly to blame for the increase in cats dropped off at the shelter. Since 2007, the number of cats has doubled to nearly 700 a year; and unfortunately, when those numbers go up, euthanasia numbers follow. Directors say about 75 percent of the cats euthanized at their shelter are feral. Chivon Kloepfer and Photo Journalist Corey Petee spent the evening at the Osceola County Animal Control and have more details in this report.
