It is nearly midnight when Tova Saul, an Orthodox Jew, approaches the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem's Old City, carrying two large cases and a variety of contraptions. Within an hour, a row will have started that will see four people, including Saul, dragged to a police station. There is Saul and a few other volunteers."Jerusalem has a very poor population and the budget is needed for a lot of things," he said.They rely on volunteers and Saul is one of the city's most active – working in areas many Jewish people are unwilling to visit.She started in the Old City's Jewish quarter, where she lives in a two-bedroom flat currently filled with five cats and six kittens.A cat is about to enter when a group of Palestinian youths arrive, startling it.Within minutes, three ultra-Orthodox Jewish men stop and stand by the trap.Saul says very religious people of all faiths often have little experience with animals.Saul heads back to the car to grab her traps.
