From where i sit as a not yet Alaska resident this is completely contadictory to common sense. The State puts out guides on bird feeding that say if you are going to be away from your home during migratory times and are an established bird feeder make sure some one covers for you because the birds will depend on that stopping point. With all respect to Hitchcock i think bears are far more scary.
Maybe the fact that this is simple common sense is why its an issue now. Common sense is being flushed away in the name of fairness and equality at the expense of logic and long term rational thought. (example...the long term effects of welfare)

Personally, I am in favor of shooting on sight anyone caught feeding wild critters (including birds). It would increase the overall intelligence of the entire State.

I have a feeling that overcrowding would not be an issue in a world run by Glitch!

I'll tell you... when someone shot a road rage driver in California a while ago... it solved most traffic problems for a while. Drivers were courtious, no cutting off, no BS.

We are overdue for yet another mass "thinning" of the species, and I am content to allow nature to take its course. I just wish others would as well and stop trying to change things, when all they really do is cause harm.

When people feed the wildlife they are altering the natural balance of the entire ecosystem of the area. They are causing more harm than just creating an unnatural dependency for a few critters.

Anything we change has a ripple effect that could alter the entire food chain. That includes hunting and fishing. Which is why we have regulations that we abide by to keep that effect to a minimum and provide a sustainable harvest so future generations can enjoy the same experiences.
