DO feed the ducks ! ! !

Yeah we had a gaggle of responses to the "Don`t feed the ducks" thread.... so this one is about  DO feed the ducks..

 

Council suspends ALL it`s litter wardens due to a litter warden giving a woman an "On the spot fine" for throwing bread around ( litter ) when there were no ducks to be seen....

Re: DO feed the ducks ! ! !

i suppose, technically, it was littering.
however it probably wasn't in the spirit of what the law was trying to enforce.

i could dump an old sofa at the side of the road and say it's not littering as i was leaving it for a homeless person to sit on that just hadn't turned up yet.
