Dumping Miss Daisy, Problematic Animal Control in Jersey City

Dumping Miss Daisy, Problematic Animal Control in Jersey City

SCROLL FOR VIDEO! Is it a case of doing the best for the animals or lazy, inept animal control? While we at The No Kill Nation would celebrate animal control embracing a feral cat program, what happened recently in Jersey City is far from a case of compassion for animals. 

Rather than following New Jersey law which requires a seven day stray hold for cats and dogs, New Jersey animal control officers were found to be picking up cats and then immediately releasing them in a park. 

No passing go.

No collecting $200.

No stray hold for an owner to reclaim or to determine the temperament of the cat.

And worst of all, no spay or neuter prior to release. Just a quick ride in a van to the park if you’re a frightened housecat. Rumors had circulated for some time that Jersey City animal control officers were not above board but proof has never surfaced. 

Is the dumping of a tame house cat into the woods just an isolated case or is it part of a larger problem at Jersey City Animal Control? Why would Officers John Ross Jr. and Aaron Jordan, who admitted dumping Daisy, have done so?

Ross reportedly told the cat’s owner he’s been doing this for years and this is the policy when it comes to handling feral cats. But Daisy was not a feral cat. She’s tame and had rarely been out of the house before.
