Alderman James Cappleman wants feeding pigeons to carry $1,000 fine

December 13, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Ald. James Cappleman of the 46th Ward says people handing out bread to pigeons have caused the birds to congregate in such large numbers that they - and especially their droppings - constitute a public nuisance.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Cappleman is proposing an ordinance that would make feeding pigeons on any public way a crime carrying a $1,000 fine.
