LOWER WINDSOR TWP. Ordinance targets cats
Officials in Lower Windsor Township are considering adopting an animal enforcement ordinance to help cut down on residents who feed stray or feral cats.
Supervisors recently reviewed a draft of the ordinance, which would make it unlawful for residents to feed wild cats unless attempting to catch them.
The ordinance was drafted in response to several complaints township staff has received regarding large numbers of wild cats gathering in areas where residents have been putting food out for them. The supervisors will review a final copy of the ordinance at their next meeting, July 8, at 7 p.m. at the township municipal building, 2425 Craley Road.
