A british expatriate has told the Euro Weekly News that several cats in colonies in Casares have been found dead and are thought to have been poisoned.
There were 15 cats living in a managed colony (TNR) that Ms Brown and other volunteers looked after. Out of the 15 cats in one colony, only four are left.
Casares Council, which works with Gatos Y Amigos to neuter the cats, said the work of the volunteers was “essential” to control cat populations.
A total of 363 cats have been neutered since March 2018, according to the local authority’s figures.
