Ending Australia’s Barbaric Bounty on Cat Scalps

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) #559: Alexandra Silver, who handles Community Advocacy & Outreach for the Animal Care Centers of NYC, talks about New Hope Partners and the focus on preventing people from having to face the heartbreak of surrendering their pets to a shelter because of a financial or practical challenge that could be managed with assistance; Brianna Grant talks about the horror of the government-sanctioned slaughter of community cats in Australia, which includes an actual paid bounty for the scalps of cats and kitten in Banana Shire, Queensland and how the non-profit has gathered 100,000 signatures against this barbaric bounty hunting; Dr. Jean Goh talks about the success of TNR in San Francisco where her group, Fix Our Ferals, is based — and is the beneficiary of the NY Cat Film Festival at the Roxy theater in San Francisco.
