I would like to bring a matter to the attention of folks of Montgomery County, especially those with pets that stay outside, about leaving food outside for your pet. There are also some folks who lean toward feeding Mother Nature’s wild critters and that may not be all bad, however you may be creating a rod for your own back. Let me point out some of the ramifications of feeding those animals and a few of the drawbacks in doing so.
There are a lot of people in our neighborhood who have bird feeders and many beautiful birds are drawn to these feeders. The birds species are varied and are extremely interesting to watch. My wife has a feeder out, and her and I enjoy watching them. As nice as it is to watch them there are a few drawbacks to feeding the birds. The first one that comes to mind is the squirrels that the feeders attract.
