OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of trap-neuter-return and trap-euthanatize management strategies for controlling urban free-roaming cat populations by use of matrix population models. DESIGN Prospective study. SAMPLE POPULATION Estimates of free-roaming cat populations in urban environments. PROCEDURE Data from the literature describing the biology of free-roaming cat populations in urban environments were gathered. A matrix population model was developed with a range of high and low… CONTINUE READING
