Officials at the Navy Submarine Base in Groton said they are dealing with a problem involving feral cats.
Many stray cats have been spotted in and around the submarine base in recent months.
Officials said the cats pose a public health threat, and potential risk to base operations.
The submarine base has reached out to local shelters and animal control officers, looking for help getting things under control.
