There is still culling in the Netherlands

I came across this sad news: https://www.dutchnews.nl/news/2018/07/1000-feral-cats-shot-in-the-netherlands-as-more-provinces-consider-a-cull/

Here is another report: https://familypet.com/feral-netherlands/

Feral cats have become such a large problem in the Netherlands than the country has implemented a yearly culling.

At least 1,000 cats have been shot and killed in the last 3 and a half years alone.

According to Dutch news outlet NRC, in the province of Utrecht, at least 316 cats have been killed since 2015, and that’s largely only counting those hunters have been required to report since 2017. In the neighboring Friesland province, 728 cats were killed during the same timeframe.
