Hi everyone at Katzenworld,
I wanted to share the extended trailer for my upcoming documentary, FERAL: the battle over Hawaii’s cats.
FERAL discusses the overpopulation of feral cats in Hawaii. It is estimated that there are several HUNDRED THOUSAND cats on the island of Oahu alone.
The film highlights…
the various reasons as to why this is a MAJOR problem:
– the health and well being of the cats
– predation on critically endangered species
– a strange parasite spread by cats linked to the deaths of endangered Hawaiian monk seals and spinner dolphins
the various methodologies attempting to help mitigate this issue:
– trap, neuter, return (sterilization)
– humane euthanasia
– cat sanctuaries
and the intense CONFLICT surrounding the debate over these methodologies.
I hope the documentary provides an objective lens through which to view this situation as it is a complex problem and will require complex, COOPERATIVE solutions.
