‘A sad situation’: Neighbors say cat colony is out of control

"There was no vicious shooting that came from nowhere," Dahl added. "This was years of having to put up with these cats."

Aileen Walden, interim director of community programs and support with Alley Cat Allies, says that she can understand the frustrations with feral cats, but says the organization's response to the shooting is about "the act of cruelty."

"An act of violence never solves these issues," she said.

No matter what the investigation findings are, there are still dozens of cats in the Bayshore neighborhood to be fed.

"It really is a sad situation," Dahl said. "While it might have been thoughtful to start, it has now become a problem that is completely out of hand."
