I live in a gated style community and one of my neighbors seems to be leaving seeds out for birds. We now seem to have a bit of an infestation of crows ducks and other unwanted vermin (not saying ducks are vermin)

Should it be aganst the law to feed ANY wild animal wether it is in a town or park or near a town? I've told my landlord (who lives with us) countless times to talk to her but our neighbor seems to be buying seeds to doing this on purpose ignoring our requests. At first I was thinking she was just trying to unload some seeds she didn't need. But now it seems more deliberate.

This wouldn't be the first time I've seen people around my neighborhood feeding animals they shouldn't feed. There's a guy I saw who looked like he was walking around town throwing seeds to feed crows on purpous. Do the mentally unwell do this or is it a good way of screwing with neighbors? And can it be outlawed officially?

I would have posted this in yahoo groups but it's a god awful form site. I don't think it's really supposed to be a forum community based on the terrible way yahoo groups is set up.

Sigh.

If we make everything a crime, soon we'll all be criminals..or so the saying goes.


I'm a birder, I feed the birds. Birds and vermin exist in your neighborhood, regardless if you feed them or not. Don't want to deal with nature? Go live somewhere without a yard - a highrise or some such.

IMHO.

I feed the birds and feral cats (that I trap, neuter then release again) too, because I cannot stand to see them starve during the Winter term.

I feed birds in my ajoining garden on my street.
So do others what do you have against birds?.
Crows and ravens are majestic creatures.
Maybe lighten up.

You want to criminalize feeding birds?

I wouldn't want to live in your world.

Perhaps the Op posted this to get the knee jerk reaction they knew so many of us would give. I think we are being trolled.

No one in their right mind would, let alone from this planet would complain about people partaking in an extremely common past time. OP, you do realize stores sell bird feed for such a purpose and the bags are specifically marked FOR WILD BIRDS, not pet birds.

boymonkey74, that is what I was excepting when I opened this thread.

Are you scared of birds, or something of the like? Having birds in your neighbourhood is beneficial. They help control weeds and insects, and they pollinate various plants. The beauty of your community would suffer greatly if feeding birds became illegal.

Birds, such as blue jays, can be very loud and territorial, the same goes for people's dogs. I have to listen to my neighbours dog bark incessently...day and night.

I hope your town/city has a bylaw regarding the barking dogs, nothing is worse when you can't sleep.

I throw corn out for the animals, especially in winter. Birds, squirrels and rabbits eat it. It's nice to have the animals around

Not really because a few years ago, I called the authorities on another barking (incessently) dog and they said they could not do anything unless it was being abused. This dog is left outside most of the day and barks with an angry tone when any animals or any person goes by, or makes any type of noise.

No!

Can you not see that it's that mentality that causes the mess we're in now?

Quite literally, good people unintentionally break the law every day because someone decides we need to get our tax funded law enforcement involved every time they had a slight problem with something someone else was doing?

No we don't need a law for that - get a hobby!
