CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Coastal Carolina University has hired Nuisance Wildlife Specialty to get rid of some feral cats roaming on campus.

The Conway-based company says it has trapped eight cats so far. The owner says he's been taking them back to his farm feeding them and that they are alive and well.

A WMBF viewer wrote us concerned that the cats had been poisoned. The viewer, who doesn't want to be identified, works on the campus and says she noticed the animals were starting to disappear, and that there was a horrible stench left behind. So WMBF News looked into the accusation to get some answers.

Nuisance Wildlife Specialty says it's been hired by the school to trap cats for the past three years. In an effort to cut down on the problem, the university is asking staff and students not to feed feral cats and they have a no pet policy on campus.
