Q: A neighbor on my street sets a trap and catches cats and kittens. His wife has them neutered mostly without the owners' permission. Afterwards, the animals are supposedly set free. Is that legal? It may be good in some ways but it also sounds like cruelty to animals.
— R. L. P.
A: If the cats have tags, an owner could charge this neighbor with theft.
If the cats do not have tags or other signs of ownership and are trapped on the neighbor's property, the neighbor is not breaking any laws, says Dorinda Pulliam at Animal Control. A conversation with your neighbor will probably reveal the neutering is an attempt to humanely reduce the overpopulation of feral cats.
