Feeding Ducks by Jim Hatfield

As I tore and cast upon the water half a loaf ofMothers Pride,
he advised that feeding ducks was now a crime, punishable by a
statutory fine.

But it has gone on since the beginning of time! I cried.

Sighing theatrically, he shook his head. Times change old cock; since
September 2009 throwing bread to ducks has been defined as littering, he
said. I’d be within my rights to effect a citizen’s arrest.

Turning from the piranha-like frenzy of ducks, gulls and geese
gulping down my fare, waterside of the fence, I looked him in the eye. You may
try, but first show me the evidence, I replied.
