Management planned for wild Salem college cats



SALEM, Ore. — Chemeketa Community College is working with a group to manage a free-roaming colony of cats that live in a wooded area on campus.

The college and Salem Friends of Felines met Tuesday and plan to meet again April 8 and announce their plans.

The Statesman Journal reports the volunteer group has been feeding, trapping, and neutering and spaying the cats for the past two years. In February, the college found and disposed of cat shelters and feeding stations.

After an outcry from the cat caretakers, the college replaced the shelters and stations for the feral felines.
