Man Accused Of Breaking Bird Feeding Law Might Be Jailed
A Bloomington man is facing possible jail time, accused of breaking a city ordinance that prohibits residents from feeding wild animals.
In Bloomington, it is legal to use bird feeders — as long as they are 5 feet off the ground. Neighbors and the charges allege that Craig Brown was throwing feed onto the ground, which is illegal.
For years, Brown said he tried to make his backyard a haven for birds.
Now, birds rarely visit Brown’s backyard. Months ago, Brown removed all his bird feeders after he said those feeders landed him in trouble with the law.
