Re: Cat owners might get nipped (Jan. 11). The city's decision to maintain the status quo and pour more money into the Winnipeg Humane Society's spay and neuter programs, will be perceived by the public as just another money grab.
The city already funds the WHS to the tune $500,000 a year, and yet the cat crisis has grown in severity. What is needed is a publicly accountable spay and neuter program, which can and will be seen as making a verifiable difference in reducing cat overpopulation.
The model that Calgary and other cities have used would be such a program.
