Authorities in the German city of Waldorf, Baden-Wട്ടംrttemberg, have decided to ban out-of-town cats. If tutors break the law, they may have to pay a fine of up to BRL 2,860.
Authorities have ruled that cats living in the northwestern Waldorf’s Rain-Necker district should be denied freedom until the end of August. The aim of the operation is to save the lark from extinction. The breeding season for this bird is from May to August.
Local politicians and environmentalists point out that domestic cats are on Lark’s list of predators and that keeping them indoors will help ensure their survival. However, the move has upset the local Animal Welfare Association, which plans to take legal action against the order.
The law applies to anyone who owns a cat outdoors in the southern part of Waldorf. If a cat escapes, the owner will be forced to catch it.
If the teacher does not respect the decision, he may have to pay a fine. According to the local news website Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung, if a cat kills one of the larvae living in Waldorf, the owner could be fined up to R $ 261,000.
The habitat of this species is remarkably well documented in the Baden-Wട്ടംrttemberg area, such as between the districts of Karlsruhe and Mannheim. In addition to Waldorf, the area around Wagssel and Ketch is also considered a lark habitat.
This species prefers to nest in the ground at construction sites near residential areas, where it can easily fall prey to small predators such as cats.
In addition, authorities claim that their babies will not be able to fly for the first few weeks. At the first sign of danger, they lie on the ground instead of running away – making it an easy target for cats.
