TNR Cat Feeding Stations Destroyed

Looking for info on someone destroying/stealing TNR feeding stations in Beacon. We've posted our contact info on the shelters: please contact us to discuss your issue with them, or if you think you may know who may be destroying them.
Four lovely (spayed/neutered & vaccinated) cats thank you!

Thanks, Nicole, but nope, we've spoken with both the Beacon police and the MTA police. We've met lots of cops while we've been "on the job"--they know exactly what we're up to and they're supportive.

This is most unfortunate, Kara, considering the volunteer time, money and effort you and other proactive, concerned citizens have put forth to try to humanely control and manage the City's stray and feral cat overpopulation crisis. Please let me know what assistance I might be able to offer to help resolve the matter.

You could buy a used Game Camera that takes pictures using an infra-red flash.  The vandal wont even know that you took their picture.  Surely they are destroying the feeding stations at night and not during broad daylight - but if they are, the cameras also take pictures during the day.  You mount/hide the camera on a tree facing the area you want to cover.  They are motion activated and can take/store hundreds of pictures.  some even shoot video.  This would allow you to also count/document the number of animals you are feeding.


Just a thought....

Thanks, Birdy. It'd be great if it were just about sharing food with the coyotes. In this case it's a human dismantling and removing shelters, so we're just trying to find out who and why.

Heard on the radio that coyotes are invading towns because of the long term snow conditions. I don't know what your stations look like or what kind of food, but coyotes have been spotted cruising Beacon.
