2010 was the highest kill year of the past five for cats and dogs in LAAS' custody.
Euthanasia of unweaned kittens is 80% higher than 2007 despite the October 2009 Mandatory spay/neuter law which most people except Winograd and I thought would curb killing. It hasn't.
The stats are not specific as to where the unweaned kittens are coming from, but they are likely ferals, which is perfectly explainable as Longcore and the Audubon people forced the city out of TNR support. Does the 80% increase in unweaned kittens impounded in 2010 over 2007 mean there are now 80% more feral cats on the streets on LA? The number of unweaned kittens, as well as cats killed have increased each year since the city got out of TNR support.
If this is true, Longcore's cat hatred has backfired, with many more cats on the street and many more birds being killed.
