Forget panhandlers, an Alabama park is having issues with a different species of beggar.
Cats are swarming Idle Hour Park in Phenix City to the point that officials are planning on trapping the felines and then offering them up for adoption, according to a report from Columbus, Georgia-based WVTM.
The four dozen feral cats are in danger of being euthanized if not enough of them are adopted, Phenix City Assistant City Manager Steve Smith told the station.
The cats have usually be spotted at night, Smith said, and coming up to the park’s pavilion begging for food.
Smith said the trapping process is underway and may take several weeks to complete.
