    Some cities now have programs to catch stray cats, neuter/spay them and then release them because they don't like the stigma of killing the critters, but do not want them breeding either.

    I would be in favor of a similar program for illegal aliens if we could just get enough veterinarians to donate free or reduced services.

    I used to help grandpa castrate the bulls and boars. I would volunteer to help with that part. Never did help with spaying, but would be willing to learn.

    I did shoot a bull in the nads with my BB gun once, had a lot of explaining to do about the busted corral -- it didn't work out so well for me.

    Too much work. Tranquilizer darts with a sterilization agent is lots easier.

    I have had bands break on older calves. I much prefer a Newberryknife.
