“Promote a co-ordinated approach to Trap-Neuter (vaccinate) and Release (TNR) of feral cats in priority areas.” (http://www.snh.org.uk/pdfs/publications/wildlife/wildcatconservationactionplan.pdf, page 8)

“Any individuals which are obviously feral domestic cats, non-native or unfit for release will bedispatched according to standard predator control practices, by the land manager, as per estate norms. Dispatch with a 12 bore shotgun using number three shot (lead shot not to be used overforeshore or wetlands), positioned 5m from the trap, aiming at the head and front of shoulder, is recommended.” (http://www.wildcathaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/rzsslicence25pages.pdf, page 21, last para)
