HEERENVEEN City canals can be death traps for hapless pets, that fall into the water. The stoned lined sides of the canals are usually steep so there is little chance that cats can make it back to dry ground on their own. The plight of such pets has caught the attention of the municipality of Heerenveen which has canals running through town. It will install planks in the canals as act as an escape route out of the water.
