The backlash against Councilman Simcha Felder’s proposal to create a $1,000 fine for feeding pigeons continues to grow.
Pigeon defenders have started a new blog, People for Pigeons, to counter misinformation being spread about pigeons and will host a rally for pigeon rights on the step of City Hall on November 30 at noon.
People for Pigeons writes:
Please show your support of pigeons and their right to peacefully exist in our City by opposing Councilman Simcha Felder’sproposal to fine anyone $1,000 for giving a hungry pigeon a crumb of food, by attending the rally on Friday, November 30 from noon to 1 pm. Please bring signs and banners in opposition to the proposed Bill.
Cornell University has an excellent web site devoted to the study of feral pigeons.
