Bengaluru: Due to the cat menace at the Raj Bhavan, the city civic administration Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has now put on a tender to catch cats from the premises of the Governor’s residence and has also given the contract to a private agency with a handsome amount of almost Rs 1 lakh rupees for catching 30 cats.

Reportedly, the dogs at the Raj Bhavan get ferocious when they spot the cats and the cats also keep moving around VIP visitors, due to which the staff have a tough time shooing them away, informed sources.

Speaking on the issue BBMP Mayor Gangambike Mallikarjun said that the civic administration has received information about the growing cat menace at the Raj Bhavan and had looked over the issue. According to the contractor, BBMP authorities were told that it will cost Rs 3,000 to catch one cat and for thirty cats the cost will be Rs 95,000.

The civic agency’s animal husbandry department said that it had never caught cats, though it was experienced in catching dogs and pigs. Left with no option, the department invited tenders to catch cats.

It is gatherd that the catching process will require rented vehicles and experienced catchers who need to be authorised by concerned veterinary officers and can catch the cats in an unharmed manner.
