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

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.
