NYC To Outlaw Feeding Squirrels, Pigeons


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Feeding animals in city parks could soon be outlawed.

That means feeding birds and squirrels – which many people love to do – could mean fines or even jail time and that’s sparking a heated debate across the five boroughs.

“I throw them under the trees,” Lucia Maris said, tossing some nuts under a shady tree in New York City.

Maria regularly feeds squirrels at Madison Square Park, even though it’s currently one of the few parks where it’s not allowed.
