He has to pay $500 for feeding birds...albeit on the ground. Are you kidding me. We have so many issues to worry about, and we pursue prosecution for this. Unreal.

The city simply wanted to "educate and change behavior," she said. Bloomington is a 'has been/wanna be' Edina. What a waste of everyones time. May the neighbors sleep good tonight nowing this man has been stopped of his evil doings and they won't have to look at a crow, deer, or any other creepy wildlife that wanders in.

Complete waste of the courts time and money! They are going to "educate" some one on feeding the animals! Stupid is as stupid does!

While I am sure that there may be radical elements on both sides of this issue I can only say I am dammed glad I do not live in Bloomington or any other part of the metro cesspool!!!

If you want to see how govn has become a bloated cow, you can always refer to this case. The whole scenario stinks.

The city of Bloomington should be ashamed of wasting the court's time. This is what they choose to concentrate their efforts on? What a bunch of idiots the city. I wished I lived there so I could vote against every one of these morons.

I've lived in Bloomington over 20 years and city hall has never bothered me. Then again, I do not tick off those that live around me. We are not in the sticks here. If I don't hear it, smell it, or see it, do what ever you want! Sunnyboy, That Edina education is doing you well. It is spelled knowing.

Rats and mice love birdfood--think about it. I lived in a town in Arizona that had a city ordinance against feeding wildlife. Had a neighbor that felt he didn't need to follow it. And the whole neighborhood soon had rats and pigeon poop all over.

This is what the city of Bloomington decides to focus its' time and resources on? Wow! I may just decide to move there since they seem to have solved all of their other problems. In the meantime, I just may put up another birdfeeder or two...

If this is what passes for prosecutable crime in Bloomington I never again have to worry about locking my car, or taking the keys out of the ignition for that matter, at the Mall Of America.
