    An upstate New York city along the Hudson River aims to round up 150 stray cats, neuter them, and set them free in a population control program dubbed "Operation Snip."

    Troy City Council President Lynn Kopka says the program is a collaboration with the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, the Rensselaer County Humane Society and other animal care groups.

    Kopka says the overpopulation of feral cats is a concern to residents and businesses throughout Troy. South Troy has been identified by the Humane Society as one of the region's hot spots for free-roaming kittens being born.

    On six days in April, the organizations hope to trap about 25 cats a day for surgery and rabies vaccinations. The wild cats, considered unadoptable, will later be returned to where they were trapped.
