Feral cats controversy continues

WACO -- A rally over the 9 feral cats in Lion's Park in Waco started Saturday but continues to grow.

Men and women with signs stood outside near Bosque and New Road this weekend to petition against the Lions Club's ban of the 9 feral cats that live on the property.

But some believe it's the decision of the property owner to make that call.

"They should be able to decide what they want to do with their own property. And it seems like a lot of bullying is going on, a lot of rhetoric is being thrown around by the friends of feral cats to try and force the Lion's Club to do what the friends of feral cats wants them to do with the Lion's Club private property," Jay Ehret, a concerned citizen said.

The Heart of Texas Feral Friends organization is the group working to keep the cats at the park.

A non-profit organization spayed, neutered and vaccinated all of the cats.

The Lion's Club removed a feeding station Saturday, but protestors are working to get it back.
