Isn't the city responsible for getting rid of the public nuisance caused by the "bird man of Bullard?"
He is spreading bird seed on a public street, resulting in bird droppings everywhere. Not only is it unsanitary, but it's also costly to businesses in the area. I seem to recall reading in The Bee previously about the damage being done to cars at the dealerships on Bullard Avenue.
What about pedestrians or wheelchairs or strollers trying to navigate the sidewalk mess? Don't his neighbors complain about the smell? Who would want to live on that block?
It started with three dozen and now is in the hundreds and growing. What does it take for the city to do something? The bird man cares about the birds, but does he care about people? I think not.
