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.


BATS!!! Bats too. Build bat houses if you have bats near you. I've never seen a more efficient and chemical-free way control the mosquito population. Not to mention I've never had one dive bomb me. I love bats

But this OP is just...weird...why would someone want to criminalize this?

To be fair, crows aren't the most welcome guests at my place. Not since I saw one make off with one of my little mouse neighbours. I didn't know that crows were predatory and was devastated to know that I'd put the mouse in danger by leaving food that would attract them both.

What I have noticed about crows is that they don't get so tame as the other birds and a quick twitch of the curtain will scare them away very easily.

Now, this will sound as if I'm being facetious, but it really might work. If you attach a length of string to your bedroom curtains and have the other end to hand by your bed, the next time the crows start making a racket outside your window, give the string a good tug. The curtains moving about might be enough to scare them off and give you the chance to go back to sleep for another hour or two.

People do need to use caution when feeding wildlife.

I think it's fine to feed song birds in a feeder meant to keep other animals out of it, but there are larger animals that can be an issue if they are fed in populated areas. My parents have neighbors that feed the raccoons and have been for decades. The raccoons in their area are huge, destructive, and not at all afraid of people. Another neighbor called the DNR about live trapping and releasing them, and was told that he could trap them but then had to kill them-it was illegal to release them somewhere else. A different neighbor took to hunting down and shooting any raccoons that wandered into his property at night. We are careful not to feed any critters in our yard--one of our dogs loves hunting down furry wildlife.

Yes, it's the mentally ill who go around feeding the animals and being stewards of the Earth, feeding and caring for the homeless, and generally just causing all sorts of mayhem... it should all be outlawed. Same with watering those devilish things... what are they called again? Oh yes, Plants! Can't stand em! In fact, exterminate all living things except for humans, and only those who can afford to live in a gated community. Anyone who prefers to live amongst the rest of humanity is just simply too "mentally ill", I can't bear the sight of such riff raff!

Should it be aganst the law to feed ANY wild animal


No.

Bring it up with your HOA and see if you make it a RULE (not a law), but otherwise, leave the rest of us who like to live in freedom out of it. (i.e. free from the evil of HOAs)....

The very idea of someone telling me what I can't or can't do in my own home and property....goes against the very fabric of our nation.....
