I hear indirectly that this incident got the attention of WDFW Enforcement. https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/fur-flies-in-neighborhood-after-trapping-of-errant-cat/

Interesting, MccAllum should be 'good to go' since she was advised by the animal control officer.

Lucky thatís all she did.
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.

glad I live in the country, where coyotes eat all the stray cats that come try to kill my quail.

Good point, I see that now.  I guess I found the wrong story after I heard about the incident.  I will look some more; I heard it got press coverage.

Personally I think that "outdoor" pet cats are a nuisance and a menace to birds and other small animals and should be considered an invasive species. I have a pet cat, and if he ever ends up injured or killed in a trap or otherwise, that would be on me for letting him get out.  :twocents:
