Wausau city leaders agree to deal allowing cops to pick up stray cats

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - The city of Wausau has reached a deal with its local Humane Society that will enable police to resume picking up stray cats.

The deal approved by the city council on Tuesday calls for the Humane Society to be paid $32,400 to house up to 150 strays picked up in Wausau and several surrounding communities. Additional animals will cost $220 each.

Officers had stopped picking up strays in January because they had no place to put the animals after the city rejected a proposed $80,000 contract with the Humane Society of Marathon County.

Sheltering strays had been handled by Marathon County, but it began phasing out funding for the service this year.
