This IS NOT the solution

From Time for Action:

Locking Cats Up Without Food or Water is NOT a Solution

March 19, 2013

Some Belarus cities have a rat problem, but the solution they came up with to deal with it is unbelievably cruel. Authorities lock cats in basements — no food, no water — to deal with the rats.

Tell Belarus officials to stop this awful, abusive way to manage their rat problem.

Local citizens have reported hearing disturbing cries of thirst and hunger from the cats, and some have been admitted to feeding the poor animals through the iron plates used to seal them into the basements. Without kind samaritans, officials are simply condemning the cats to a long, slow, painful death from starvation and dehydration.

An animal rights leader estimates that 9,000 cats have been killed in Minsk alone in the last three years. This widespread practice needs to stop before we lose another 9,000.

Demand Belarus authorities stop locking cats in basements to “deal with” rats.
