One of our neighbors where I used to hunt built and sold suppressed 22 rifles to cities for Pest Management.
You never know they're around taking care of pests.

Shooting
Shooting is an efficient method to reduce populations of cats in specific areas. Use shotguns with No. 6 shot or larger, .22-caliber rifles, or air rifles capable of shooting 700 feet per second or faster (inside 20 yards and with pointed pellets). Aim shots between the eyes or in the heart/lung area to ensure a humane death. Shooting in urban areas is a very sensitive matter as many safety factors need to be considered. Consult local officials to determine if shooting is legal in your area. It is not legal to discharge a firearm, including air rifles, inside the city limits of Lincoln and Omaha (Lincoln: Section 9.36.010 Ord. 15625 §1, Omaha: Section. 20-196 and 20-197 Ord. 38295 § 1). In most cases, shooting is avoided inside city limits unless an animal poses an imminent threat to public health and safety.

We are not inside the city limits, but the county regs that cover feral cats are ridiculous.  You are required to contact animal control, rent a trap from them for $5/day.  You receive a permit from the county that is valid for a certain number of days. When you catch one you have to deliver it (live) to the county and give them the cat in the trap.  The 1 animal control facility in the county is about an hour drive from us.

How do they know what you trap?

County drones?

They don't. Looked like a raccoon to me. :)  Oh, and we used our own trap cause coons. :)

Me too. Feral cats tear the heck out of local bird populations in particular, and anything else they can catch.

Yes, and I'm sorry, I really don't mean to turn this into a cat thread, but there are just a ton of parallels to feral hogs; spread of disease, damage to property (they've been spraying garden!) and the list goes on.

My dad never had a problem shooting anything feral. Permit? He had a Hoover Permit.

Pretty much what a Hoover Permit is. In "honor" of Herbert Hoover. Hand to mouth Depression era.  A phrase used by my grandfather.  It means "I don't need the government's (or anyone else's) permission". I'll take care of it myself, my way.

I was reading back through the article again.  I cannot understand why it's fine to hunt feral pigs but a hunt of feral cats makes people crazy.  Just about every check mark against the pig can be said for feral cats.

I believe the lacking criteria is the dollar amount of destruction of Agriculture Crops.

I would submit the lacking criteria is city folks not having any concept of reality.
