CHEYENNE — City leaders in Cheyenne are discussing whether it’s time to ban the feeding of ducks and geese in city parks.
Assistant director of parks and recreation Todd Feezer says the rising number of ducks and geese in the city’s public spaces is becoming a health hazard.
The City Council on Monday approved a first reading of an ordinance that would prohibit the feeding of ducks or geese at any city-run park, golf course or recreational space as well as on city-owned property. Violators could face possible fines of $10 to $25.
A council committee plans to take up the proposal Oct. 2.
