LaSalle council calls out feral cat feeders

LASALLE – Concerns over residents feeding feral cats in LaSalle was addressed at Monday’s city council meeting. According to Mayor Jeff Grove, people in the neighborhood are putting food out and sheltering stray cats. According to City Attorney James McPhedran, prohibiting people from feeding animals would be a tough ordinance to pass, however the city can enforce their leash law if they see a loose cat near a residence. Mayor Grove says he know folks are trying to do the right thing, however its not helping the city’s efforts to trap them and send them to shelters.
