Petition can't stop seagull feeder


A petition to prevent a Tauranga pensioner from feeding seagulls will not stop him from feeding them daily.

George Shaw hand-feeds up to 50 gulls a day from the first-floor balcony of his 14th Ave home. His neighbours said they were fed up of their washing and homes being splattered with bird poop.

They appealed to the Tauranga City Council to get the Mr Shaw to stop but the council has no bylaw preventing people from feeding seagulls.

The council received legal advice and told the neighbours there was nothing they could do to stop Mr Shaw.
