The Lodi Unified School District has posted information about the feral, or wild, cat population that can be found on campuses throughout the district. Mitch Slater, the district's maintenance and operations director, warns people not to feed wild cats.
The most recent incident took place at Victor School, where five classrooms and a storage room were inundated with fleas. District officials believe that feral cats underneath one of the classrooms attracted the fleas.
District officials contacted an expert on feral cats, Scott R.R. Haskell, director of the veterinary technology program at Yuba College, for advice on dealing with feral cats.
