The feral cat must be deleted as a harmful species in Art.5 of the Swiss Federal Law on Hunting and Protection of Wild Mammals and Birds

Petition to the Attention of the Government and Parliament of Switzerland.

Hunting feral cats is legal all year round throughout Switzerland and in September 2013, the Government and Parliament voted to keep this law in force.

It is a cruel, unreliable and dangerous method for the population as well. Hunters cannot recognize a feral cat from a roaming domestic cat with a microchip.

We demand the surrender of Art. 5 of the Federal Hunting Law and the support of the Government and Parliament for a better animal protection policy to control the overpopulation, abandonment and killing of feral and stray cats in Switzerland.
