Cheyenne Council Passes Bird Feeding Ban
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The city of Cheyenne has made it illegal to feed geese and ducks on any city-owned or city-operated property.
The Cheyenne City Council approved the ban on an 8-2 vote Monday. There was no discussion from the public or from council members.
The Associated Press reports that those who violate the law can be issued a written warning or cited. Those cited will face a fine of $10-$25.
Officials say the ban is necessary to control the migratory bird population.
They say birds that have become accustomed to being fed by humans no longer migrate, meaning more birds are spending more time in the city.
