Council Bluffs OKs Ban on Feeding Wild Turkeys

Associated Press

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — Council Bluffs has given the green light to a measure that bans residents from purposely feeding wild turkeys.

The City Council unanimously approved a second reading Monday on an ordinance that bans turkey feeding. The council waived a third and final reading, which means it will be in effect soon.

The Daily Nonpareil reports a first offense could result in a warning letter, and subsequent offences could lead to the fine. Growing a garden or flowers that attract the birds would not fall under the category of purposely feeding them.

Councilman Nate Watson says feeding wild turkeys causes a nuisance.
