Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

I WATCHED a young cou­ple and their preschool child wad­dle down to the pond car­ry­ing a num­ber of loaves of bread. They tossed it all into the wa­ter and let it float around like al­gae.

The ducks and birds were not at all in­ter­ested be­cause be­ing late Sun­day af­ter­noon they had al­ready been fed many times by peo­ple.

I'll give them their due though; at least they didn't throw the empty bags on the ground like many do.

Why is it that so many peo­ple ig­nore of­fi­cial signs telling them not to feed the wildlife and think their en­joy­ment is more im­por­tant than wildlife health? Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
