So Nathan Winograd, what happened here? And this is a very small shelter and one would think that the smaller shelters could make your morbid program work but it just ain't there.,0,3929922.story

Easton officials are at a loss to solve the city's growing problem with feral cats and the people who feed them.
The city has no official count, but says its feral cat population is on the rise. The turning point, officials say, came when the Center for Animal Health and Welfare in Williams Township went no-kill in 2003.
Feral cats are nothing new, especially in the city's more densely populated neighborhoods. But the shelter's policy change often leaves it at capacity and unable to accept new animals. Even if that weren't the case, Easton can't afford to spend $100 per cat to trap, spay and release them, Panto noted.

"The no-kill killed us. That's what did it," he said. "We can't have a no-kill shelter that doesn't euthanize animals."

Learning that lesson after the fact only means that more animals suffered in the meantime. Nathan J. Winograd, Michael Vick has nothing on you as far as cruelty of animals.

No Kill for cats depends on TNR-only management that takes away peoples' rights to remove cats. TNR is the number one element of Winograd's so-called "No Kill Equation,". This is terrible for wildlife, a threat to public health, and a burden to property owners and/or city residents who might not want to be living next to cat colonies.

No Kill for cats simply means abandoning all options for animal control. No Kill means redefining 'cats outdoors' as 'not a problem'. Basically, put up and shut up.

This October 16th (National Feral Cat Day for TNR advocates), do cats and wild animals and your neighbors a favor - take in a cat and provide her an indoor-only home or take her to an open admission shelter where she may have a chance at adoption or the gift of euthanasia - a far more compassionate outcome for homeless cats.

Excellent link, Anon!!! That plus how damn cruel it is, period, makes me wonder how people fall for this crap. I believe in Trap, Neuter, and RETAIN, that's rescue.
