Bravo for Mr. Tomko and shame on the Judge. This pest (around here) and food source found a home and doesn't want to migrate anymore.

Its about time someone stood up for the rights of other living creatures on this earth, Good for the Judge and the Neighbor! All of these critters (geese, opposum, racoon, fox, coyote, skunk etc) are habitating within human boundaries because we humans destroyed their living areas to build Condo's, Office Buildings and Shopping Malls.

How often we see a dead mama duck or goose on the road because someone decided they didn't have time to wait to let her walk her children across the street. How disgusting a person is that!

I wish people would realize that animal cruelty is unacceptable, and can lead to people abuse. I am tired of animal abusers getting a slap on the wrist for hurting a defenseless creature. I would personally punish any kid of mine if they harmed an animal , or let the courts do it, I would have no problem with it. Fortunately, I didnt have parents that were cold hearted. I learned to be kind to animals early on.
