HUDSON’S HOPE, B.C. – The District of Hudson’s Hope has issued a public notice after the District office and animal control officer had been receiving multiple reports of the ‘dropping off’ of kittens and cats across the bridge that heads out from Hudson’s Hope.

Animal control officer Richard Mason says if people don’t want their animal, to either call the animal control officer or the Veterinary clinic in Chetwynd.

“Phone us and we’ll come and get your animal and we’ll look after it.”

Mason says he will sometimes call the SPCA in if they are needed. He said a citizen offered to catch two cats that were around for at least a month and starving.

He says the cats were being dropped off at the driveway of a resident.

“I drive by there every now and again and I saw the cats and I tried catching them and couldn’t catch them so I figured they were his until I found out more about it and found out that they weren’t his.”

Mason said that right now they don’t have any idea of who has been dropping the cats but are hoping they will find the person responsible.
