A new book by wildlife control consultant Stephen M. Vantassel, "The Practical Guide to the Control of Feral Cats," is now available.

"With an estimated 60 million feral cats in the United States, the need for information on the management of house cats has never been higher," Vantassel said. The new book details the biology, estimated cat numbers and control methods useful for the management of feral cats. 

Vantassel has been involved with the wildlife control industry since 1988. His articles have appeared in PCT, Wildlife Control Technology, Fur-Fish & Game, Fur Taker Magazine, Trapper's Post, and more. 

The 106-page book is supplemented by 70 photos and illustrations. It is available in both digital and print editions. Learn more at wildlifecontrolconsultant.com
