A concerned citizen filed a 311 complaint to ask that the city remove a bird feeder now attached to a city light pole on Chappie Street in Charlestown.
Please remove before it starts to attract rodents.
Do you like how UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
They mean squirrels, don't they? That feeder looks to be one of the allegedly squirrel-proof types. Those feeders select for the most agile and athletic squirrels, and I see no reason to not encourage that, because I like squirrels.
Now, if it were out in Ashby, and the complainant were worried about attracting bears, I'd be on board.
Maybe also worried about rats on the ground eating the seeds that get spilled but honestly, that's a drop in the bucket in terms of available food in a city.
Squirrels are rodents.
But they are probably worried about rats.
Yes, we know squirrels are rodents. Never said they weren't. If they're worried about rats, they worry too much; no rat could get at that feeder.
Said every rat within a 2 block radius.
(although there are easier pickings to be had, I'm sure)
you'll see a mess from the birds spilling seeds everywhere. They're not the neatest when dining.
Fun is dead
People and their junk food and gourmet food trash make rats, squirrels and birds look like woke creatures.
complaint about petty 311 complaints. Rodents are gonna rodent, bird feeder or not.
From South Boston in particular - people who post 311 complaints about what they consider stupid 311 complaints by other people. I might have even written about one or two in the past, but tend to stay away from them because, honestly, what sort of loser spends any time just browsing 311 complaints?
Oh, wait, let me rephrase that ...
.. is the lack of a comment section.
If 311 had a comment section, it would put this place out of business.
Tail or Bush...take your pick
