(Bowling Green)—Members of the Wood County Humane Society (WCHS), along with volunteers from the local community, recently convened the first meeting of a committee that seeks to explore ways of addressing the feral cat population in Wood County.
According to committee member Kathy Dean, the first phase of committee work involves intensive education about the nature and scope of the problem in the local area. To this end, committee members currently are involved in learning about the factors that influence feral
cat populations. Education efforts also involve researching how other communities address such populations, reading extensively on the issue, and talking with experts about available resources to address the issue.
The committee, which is chaired by Kay Chapman, held its first meeting on April 24 at Grounds for Thought coffee shop in Bowling Green. Fifteen volunteers from the local community were in attendance at this meeting.
