City on ducks: Let 'em get their own food

For the umpteenth time, the City of Spokane's Parks Department has a message for walkers and loungers at Manito Park.

Don't feed the freaking ducks. Or the geese either, for that matter.

The city's been trying to get folks to stop feeding the ducks for several years. The bread that is the most common food people bring to the park isn't good for them, the ducks get fat on empty calories, they don't get enough exercise and they foul the pond water.

But then, you've heard that all before. And YOU are probably not doing it. So the next time you're at Manito Park and see SOMEONE ELSE feeding the ducks, feel free to read them the riot act.

Or maybe just point to one of the signs that say don't feed the ducks.
