A PENSIONER says she was ‘humiliated’ after being issued with a fine for feeding pigeons.
The 82-year-old, from Leigh, was feeding the pigeons with bird food she had brought from the market on Bradshawgate last Monday, January 27, when she was approached by a Wigan Council environment enforcement officer.
He informed her she was in breach of section 87 of the Environmental Protection Act and issued her a fixed penalty notice for littering. Council has a zero tolerance policy towards littering and bird feeding.
Using an Ultrasonic Repeller would have shooed those pigeons away and the feeding would never had happened.
