Activists fight bid to remove Puerto Rico's 'colonial cats'

A stray cat sits on a wall in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2022. Cats have long walked through the cobblestone streets of Puerto Rico's historic district, stopping for the occasional pat on the head as delighted tourists and residents snap pictures and feed them, but officials say their population has grown so much that the U.S. National Park Service is seeking to implement a “free-ranging cat management plan” that considers options including removing the animals.
