Battle over stray cat feeding ban in Palmerton, Pa. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News Mornings on January 11, 2019.

You might think feeding stray cats could become a problem, but people in one Pennsylvania community are actually trying to protect the practice.

A crowd packed Palmerton Borough Hall in Carbon County Thursday night.

They are trying to overturn a law that forbids feeding strays.

One woman says she's already been fined $123.

Humane officers defend the act as long as it's part of a Trap-Neuter-Release program to control the population.

Borough leaders have agreed to meet with animal activists next week to hopefully come to a common ground.
