Animal rights org. calls on Friesland to stop shooting stray cats

Friesland is the only Dutch province that still allows hunters to shoot and kill stray cats. Animal rights organization Dier&Recht is calling on the province to stop this practice immediately, calling it cruel and outdated, AD reports.

Shooting stray cats is allowed under Dutch law, based on Article 67 of the Flora and Fauna Act. According to Friesland, the practice is necessary to protect meadow birds. In 2021, the province killed over 250 cats, and 447 the year before.
