Bird feeder lands woman in court


UPI News Service, 08/28/2012 

A Massachusetts woman's love of birds -- coupled with a tendency to overfeed them -- has run her afoul of the law, officials said.

Hull, Mass. town officials sought an injunction Monday against Gail Kansky, 71, arguing in court she has been constantly overfeeding swarms of birds, creating a public nuisance. The officials argued that Kansky's habit of frequently refilling a bird feeder has led to more than 100 birds taking up residence in the area, The Boston Globe reported.

Neighbors have complained the leftover bird feed has created a rat problem and the bird droppings regularly soil cars and homes in the area, a town lawyer charged.

A judge has given both sides two weeks to submit written arguments before making a ruling.

Kansky, though, isn't leaving her perch.

"I won't take down the bird feeder because I'm not wrong," she told the Globe.
