We're talking about feral colonies.
That's not possible in with large colonies. If it was a cat in my neighborhood, 
I would just take it in, feral or not which I have done.
Large sanctuaries do not have resources to manage large numbers of FeLV cats, 
especially not feral FeLV cats. It may be sad, but it is the best choice with 
ferals. I could not bear the thought of a feral cat dying slowly alone from 
FeLV.

I have several FelV cats, and they have lived long healthy lives.
I do not think an asymtomatic FelV cat should be automatically
euthanized. There are sanctuaries that take FelV cats, or they 
should be isolated from other cats, but not killed.
