Denise Michaels argues that trap-neuter-release programs have failed to control the number of feral cats.
Feeding feral cats only attracts wildlife too and then the cats are interacting with animals that carry very dangerous diseases. And for those that say cats are not dangerous to humans – cat scratches are filled with fecal matter and disease. You would not say that if you or your child got cat scratch fever or had to receive rabies shots because the wild cat that bit could not be captured to test for rabies because it had be allowed to roam freely. Sometimes controlled euthanasia is the most humane answer. It would eventually end the problem. These other methods rely on too many people to be responsible, and if that worked we would not be in the predicament in the first place.
