City To Launch Cat Control Program

Posted on Monday, August 31, 2015 23:53 PM

The city is launching a trap, neuter and return program in hopes it'll be the cat's meow.

Council approved the six-month pilot project at their meeting last night, in an effort to reduce the population of free-roaming cats in Thunder Bay. 

Councillors heard that euthanization for 800 cats last year carried a price tag of $15,000.

The city will also do its due diligence before placing parking limits on a pair of city roads.

Two separate recommendations before council last night, to enforce two-hour parking restrictions on Elgin Street, and Waverley Street, respectively, were referred back to administration.

Councillors agreed they need more information first from affected businesses, schools, and residents. (File photo)
