They call for the implementation of the Project CES (capture, sterilization and release) in all municipalities

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

The GARM Association (Animalista Group Murcia) is campaigning for the Murcia region for the implementation of the Project CES in all municipalities

Members of the animalistic association Garm, carry travels hundreds of kilometers our region, submitted applications and a proposed motion to municipalities and municipal parties that form the heart of the consistory, to demand the implementation of a non-lethal control plan the feline population

For several weeks, members of Garm, makes route are the towns of Murcia, presented our proposal to implement a motion control project feline population, known as Project CES (capture, sterilization and release).

For now visas municipalities have been: Cartagena, Bullas, Cehegín, Caravaca, Moratalla, Calasparra and Cieza.

And they have opened talks with the mayor and municipal councilors various opposition parties in each municipality.

At the meeting last Monday 2 May, the Bureau of Animal Welfare of the City of Cartagena, consisting of the following organizations and associations: Local Police, Fire, CATAD, UPCT, UNED, College of Veterinarians of Murcia, CTSSP, Citizens , PSOE, MC, PP, Cologne Hormigonera, Four cats CT, Fedanimur, PAES, Department of Education, Seprona, Refugees, and this association (GARM).

This topic was discussed, and voted by a majority to control cat colonies by using nonlethal means, it must rank as one of the duties and obligations of the City, and so will pick up in the new Municipal Ordinance It is being developed, in one of its annexes.

And surely and gradually more and more municipalities will join in this initiative Cartagena.

From Garm it clear to municipalities in the region of Murcia:

The statement that "Feral cats can transmit diseases to humans" is false.

Different studies show that the incidence of disease in cats sanitarily controlled colonies is not greater than the cats living with families.

Moreover, not having contact with people (most are very sullen and fleeing people) it is impossible to transmit any disease.

He extermination of stray cats already produced serious health problems in the past.

For many centuries, in Europe the cat was considered an evil creature, the friend of witches or devil's disciple.

The persecution he underwent proved so effective that around 1400 the cat was almost extinct.

This caused an unprecedented increase in the rat population, which carried one of the deadliest diseases of the time and that killed a third of Europe's population, the Black Death.

That the statement "If left to feed these wild cats, will leave" It is also false.

A ban on feeding the cat colonies will not leave.

Why?

Because cats create a very strong link with the area in which they live, because they are territorial animals, and if necessary seek another way to survive, feeding on garbage, animals such as mice or cockroaches … or looking for food elsewhere, but always returning to their "home".

And finally, that the only valid and effective procedure, and recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the University Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) on health status and population control colonies free cats solution you live in the city, it is the health plan feline sterilization, known as CES Project (trap-neuter-release).

This solution has ecological and economic reasons: sterilize is better and cheaper than exterminate.
