A question I haven't seen addressed in any of the reporting about this, was what responsibility the City of Durham and/or the original artist had accepted for maintaining the mural and/or incorporating the restoration of the building (windows, etc.)? It had been up for 18 years, and never maintained to that date. What arrangement for the mural was part of the purchasing agreement for the building? Did the owners have any signs (other than the historical commission's comments) that the city or the artist was determined to maintain the mural in a way that would look good going forward? If not, I really don't see their actions as all that far out of line, although it was tone-deaf.
Sounds like somebody's didn't read the disclaimer. "Please do not copy and paste the full text of a press release."
I challenge the previous poster to provide any verifiable instances of their so-called feral cat 'hoarding' in Wake County - or even in the entirety of North Carolina. Something they fail to mention is that when cats are spayed/neutered, they are also tattooed as well as clipped - so it is fairly easy to tell if a captured animal has been fixed.
As for the rest of their claims - the burden of proof is on the person making the outrageous allegations.
