A stray cat, picked up this past weekend near Basehor-Linwood High School, rests at the city of Basehor’s temporary animal holding facility at the city’s water treatment plant. Finding new homes for stray animals has become costly for the city since it adopted a no-kill policy.
Stories this photo appears in:
A group tasked with studying the stray-pet problem in rural Leavenworth County has emerged with the conclusion that there may not be much of a problem at all — or at least little evidence of one.
More complaints related to animals poured into the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office than calls about any other topic in 2011.
Around 7 a.m. today, and again this evening, Slim Wilson will drive through the sliding gate in the chain-link fence that guards Basehor's water treatment plant to visit a cat he picked up near Basehor-Linwood High School this past weekend.
