Feeding fowl in Fostoria illegal at 2 city reservoirs

FOSTORIA — City Council approved legislation this week that prohibits residents from feeding ducks and geese at two of Fostoria's reservoirs.

The ordinance, which applies to reservoirs two and three, was scaled back from a previous ordinance that would have banned residents from owning or feeding some farm animals and birds within city limits.

The legislation was adjusted after some residents complained the initial proposal was too restrictive.

Under the measure, people could have been arrested for feeding squirrels and birds in their yards.
