Feeding ban doesn't belong


To the editor:

It’s a sad day when the government takes away such a small pleasure like feeding birds/squirrels in New York parks.

I have a lovely photo of my husband in Poland with a pigeon in his hand as he fed it. It’s heartwarming.

There should be no ban regarding feeding birds and squirrels in New York parks. Anyone who agrees should go onto Change.org and sign the petition along with nearly 5,000 other folks with altruistic hearts and good intentions.

Food is a basic necessity for all of us. It should not be deprived when other sources are limited.

Drawing people in to feed local critters and encouraging them to clean up any trash seems like a win for all involved.
