A 97-year-old woman faces a fine of £2,500 for feeding birds in her garden – even though the pensioner loves watching the sparrows and robins so much.

Anne, a 97-year-old pensioner from Great Britain, feeds birds in her garden. But this could now be very expensive. She faces a fine of 2,500 pounds (around 2,900 euros), as the Mirror reports.

A neighbor is not at all happy with the pensioner’s hobby. It is said that it attracts pigeons and seagulls to the area. First, she received a written warning from the city council. It said that she would be fined £100 if the “antisocial behavior” did not stop, writes the “Mirror”.

Now there has been another warning, which threatens, among other things, a fine of £2,500. The council’s Environment and Health Department could also take legal action. This could even force Anne and her 77-year-old son, who lives with her, to leave their home for up to three months.

“It’s disgusting, ridiculous and unbelievable,” says the 77-year-old about the situation. According to the Mirror, Anne loves watching the sparrows and robins so much. Now mother and son are not allowed to throw bird food on the ground, roof or outside the property, nor are they allowed to put large amounts of bird food on a bird table. They have also been banned from having contact with their neighbor, the complainant.

Another woman also received a large fine: Charlotte Russ was ordered to pay $88,000. She and her family spent time on a beach in California. Her children collected 72 live mussels. The California Department of Fisheries issued the fine in order to protect mussel biodiversity.

But Charlotte was lucky. She explained the situation to a judge and the fine was reduced to $500.
