Fined for feeding ducks in the park?
A woman has had her penalty notice fine of Â£75 for feeding ducks in the park with her son, dropped, by a local council.
Originally, the lady was fined for feeding the ducks in a "non designated area."
At first Sandwell Council defended the issuing of the penalty ticket, but back tracked when they suddenly decided to take "a common sense approach" - but only because "warning signs in the area are being sorted out."
Designated area - if a park with ducks isn't a designated area, what is?
It gets worse - in the future, all feeding of ducks at this particular park, will be banned!
You can pay your hard earned cash to bird charities and the powers that be can give away your taxes to help animals and birds, etc, yet when it comes to giving ducks/geese, etc, some old bread when attempting to show your children some compassion towards animals, in their natural environment, you are banned and fined for doing so?
