Posted on 03/11/2014 4:08:33 PM PDT by PaulCruz2016
An elderly woman violated her probation by leaving bread crumbs out in her yard for crows and will remain behind bars.
Eighty-one-year-old Mary Musselman was first arrested last month for feeding bears in her backyard. One of the bears was euthanized over it because the Fish and Wildlife Service said the bears might learn not to be afraid of people anymore and then get aggressive.
The judge in the case warned Musselman not to feed any more wild animals of any kind:
A judge gave her probation at the time, and made it clear: Do it again, and go to jail. She did, was arrested in January, and the case ignited controversy when Musselman was held without bond.

I am sending Mary Poppins over immediately.
I feel so much safer now...
What are you in for? Feeding the birds.
No problem at all given that she won’t stop at any step short of that.
Bears are not cartoon characters.
bread crumbs will attract bears
“...might learn not to be afraid of people anymore and then get aggressive.”
Sounds like this is describing socialist, Democrat voters whom hard-working taxpayers have been feeding for generations. Now if we could just get the Fish and Wildlife guys to update their euthanasia policy.
I’ll sleep better tonight now the police have taken such a dangerous criminal off the streets.
They gotta make room on the streets for all those newly minted citizens, the one Paul wants to give amnesty, don’t you know?
I really got pissed when I saw news photos of her in a orange jumpsuit and handcuffs.
You can never tell about those evil bird feeding folks. Buck Naked (Phillip Bury) was murdered by one because his dog scared the birds he was feeding.
My friend lives out in the country, and he has a neighbor who always puts out bird seed and corn so the deer can feed off of it. One day a half-dozen of them or so came up to his patio and started becoming aggressive when there was no food there and caused damage to his door and yard.
She was attracting wild bears to the area and making them associate humans with food. She was told not to feed the animals to stop this happening but she wouldn’t listen. No sympathy. Being a sweet little old lady is no excuse to ignore the law.
There is something else going on here. Dementia maybe?
Some girls think they are publicProperty these days
Yeah, I hope they beat the crap out of her after breaking down the door and shooting her dog. We are all criminals now. Can you all say “Gestapo “?
At first read, yes, it does sound very petty, very Bloombergish, but think about why this is happening. If she attracts bears in that area, the bears may get over their fear of people and then start attacking folks or destroying their property. It’s sad that she wouldn’t listen and abide by the Judge’s reasonable conditions. Second best would be if she could move in with someone near, but not too near that area of bear habitation. Some seniors will pick a particular thing and double or ‘triple down’ on NOT CHANGING or doing things their way without regard to the results, or effects on their health.
She has a history of being warned and cited and continued to violate the warnings.
She's a crazy old bat so throw her in jail and feed her nothing but wonder bread and water........
