Wagner says cats, cows, goats need to be addressed
Asks the Flomaton council to find a solution
February 11, 2021
Flomaton Councilwoman Kay Wagner said the town needed to come up with a plan to deal with cats and also needs to address people raising livestock inside the town limits.
“I challenge everyone in here to come up with some kind of solution for cats,” Wagner said Monday afternoon. “We have an infestation of cats.”
She said one of the problems is people feeding the stray cats, especially around the post office.
“If we find out people are feeding cats, maybe we need to fine them,” she said.
Utilities Superintendent Shaun Moye the town could pay $25 per feral cat to be euthanized in Atmore or take roaming pet cats to the Brewton Animal Shelter at a cost of $65 each.
“It's a bad situation,” Moye said.
Wagner also said the town needed to address livestock in town.
“We have someone who wants to bring goats and cows into town,” she said. “I'm not for zoning, but we need to do something about cows and goats.”
Town Attorney Chuck Johns said he would research the issue, but said there may be problems on where to draw the line on which animals can and which animals can't be held inside the town limits, noting some people may own a pet potbelly pig.
