I have sent all to various media contacts. I was surprised none have contacted me.
As with Ramirez killing squirrels in Santa Monica in 1998, I suggest any traps left by animals services be made ineffective. Go into the parks where the traps are and close them, take the food away. The cats will be safe for one night. Some of us may want to cut the traps with wire cutters to make them inoperable, but I cannot recommend such illegal actions, although I could understand why they would do it.
People did that in Santa Monica in 1998, liberating about half the poison bait stations. When they killed the squirrels again in 2006, they had to station cops all over Palisades Park to keep people from stealing and destroying the live traps. This tied up a lot of cops, animal service people and brought media. This kind of noise would prevent ferals from being trapped during the day.
If traps are thus made ineffective, Animal Services will be forced to stay with live traps which will cut the number they can place out at any time and the number of hours they will be trapping. Even these trapping sessions can be harassed and noise made to prevent the cats going in. Photograph or video the traps being baited and set and post in Facebook or send to me for posting.
Deliberately put a lot of food in the area for the feral cats while they are under threat.
I was successfully able to prevent many neighbors from trapping a colony in Santa Monica indefinitely by just overfeeding the ferals. They never bothered going into the traps despite being loaded with fried chicken and tuna which was not their normal food. Finally, they and the City of Santa Monica gave up trying to trap them. We won that battle.
Organize resistance. Be as discrete as you want. I tend not to be discrete, but that is me. Feed when no one is there. Do it the way you are most comfortable.
Right now they are traping at Imperial School at 12495 Isis Avenue in Hawthorne, and at Del Aire County Park. I'd go tonight and tomorrow, Feed the ferals. Watch this blog for other places they are trapping. I will set up a coordinating blog that anyone can post info about what is happening where if a few people are interested.
The other way is to get a court order to stop them. I have no idea how to do this. They have provided no justification for it, and they will lie to the media when questioned. I am trying to get science experts to call Fielding and the media.
CALL THE SUPERVISORS AND PROTEST! Already many have told me they are going to call Ramirez and complain. But he sort of likes telling people that the killing is necessary and they will do it no matter what you think.
