East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) Cat Shooting
In November 2020, the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) in Oakland, California, sent armed teams out in the dead of night to hunt and kill cats in a tiny slip of park bordered by car dealerships and office buildings. They admitted to having shot and killed 13 cats in that park, and six more in other parks that same year.
This systematic execution of animal cruelty was carried out by an agency funded by taxpayers in one of the most progressive regions in the United States. The missing cats were spayed and neutered, microchipped, and being cared for daily.
This is an outrageous abuse of the public trust and totally out of step with the moral guideposts that govern our society.
Alley Cat Allies has been involved since the story broke. We are determined to bring about real change. What happened to these cats should never be allowed to happen again. We need people everywhere to speak up.
