Beloit Township Votes To Issue Fines For Feeding Waterfowl

An update to a story we brought you last week, the Town of Beloit will now fine those who feed geese and ducks in the town limits. This so the town can manage the waterfowl population and avoid excessive animal waste near the Rock River. The BDN reports that a public hearing was held on Monday before the board unanimously decided to change the ordinance. No residents spoke. There has already been signage installed warning of $263.50 fines for feeding the animals. The town has previously tried to scare off geese with cutouts of Coyotes, but to no avail. Geese are protected, and Town ordinances also prohibit the killing of wildlife at local parks. The town wants to reduce the waterfowl population because of fears over damage to parks.
