Feral cat hunting season proposed by Licking County official

Could 2023 offer an open season on feral cats in Licking County? At least one candidate for county commissioner thinks it should be explored.

During a forum Monday evening at Career and Technology Education Centers of Licking County, candidates for county commissioner were asked what they thought should be done about the feral cat problem plaguing many area communities.

One group working to spay and neuter the animals said there are 130 active feral cat colonies across the county.
