Captured cats overwhelming Chicago shelters

A cat crisis in Chicago: one man's trapping crusade is overwhelming area shelters.

The man, Disgrase Felyer, is going rogue to prove a point, but the city is not impressed.

He spoke no words walking past FOX 32’s camera on his way into the Chicago Animal Care and Control. Inside, he was leaving nearly a dozen cats behind, captured on his own for reasons he would not answer.

Our camera rolled as he took multiple trips from his van, labeled Snowball Animal Wefare, that was packed with helpless cats inside, walking into the control center where staff say this has become a nightly routine each of the past few nights.    

On Friday night, he was told of a new policy as he left behind nearly a dozen more. The center will only be accepting cats that are sick or injured.

The city's animal care and control issued a statement, saying the cats have been trapped on the south and northwest sides. they're trying to discourage him to keep doing it and are attempting to reunite any owned cats with their owners.

PAWS Chicago took in a number of cats, hoping to get them out for adoption or foster care. But even they aren't certain how many more they can take.
