Wildlife bill prohibition lacks specificity for humans

Beware of the collateral damage such lack of specificity in a law can cause!

So let me get this straight.  Take down the hummingbird feeders. OK.

What about the attraction of butterflies to over-ripened fruit? And the planting (artificially locating of non-indigenous species legally purchased at local nurseries) to specifically attract butterflies. Or the tree in my neighbors yard that was planted because the parrots love to alight there and eat the seed pods.

And the use of water features in landscaping of private property that attracts all manner of species, ie. amphibian, avian, aquatic, insect, etc.,  that without the feature would NOT be inclined to visit.

This is Pandora box revisited.
