Sidney bylaw forbids feeding gulls, pigeons

Sidney will be putting up more signs along its waterfront walkway to remind people that feeding seagulls and pigeons is strictly forbidden.

The Town’s animal license and control bylaw, which was updated earlier this year, includes gulls and pigeons on its list of wildlife not to be fed and doing so intentionally will bring about a ticket or fine.

Signs are already up along the walkway, but a resident complaint about continued bird feeding led council on Nov. 12 to increase visibility of this policy by adding more signs.

Councillor Kenny Podmore added the bylaw will be tough to enforce, even with new signs.
