Stop Excessive Wildlife Feeding

While many people mistakenly think they are helping animals, feeding them, especially excessively, causes a multitude of problems for the animals and for humans.  In the process of researching this I found a web site called PAWS.  Please take the time to check into the issues at their site, http://www.paws.org/feeding-wildlife.html.  Also be sure to read their "About" page.

As PAWS describes so well:  " We are the kind of people who delight in the company of an animal friend, who are awed by a majestic eagle in flight. Like you, we understand that animals enrich our lives. We also know they cannot speak for themselves and need protection. That is why PAWS brings together people like you to ensure animals are respected, safe and have a voice."

Please sign my petition to encourage our Town Council to adopt an Ordinance and maybe even duplicate this for your town, here:

  1. Very reasonable article from PAWS. The potential harm to wild animals from overfeeding can't be argued. Anyone who truly cares about animals would NOT overfeed! Esther Gass
