Feed a Deer, Go to Jail

If I lived in Chesterfield, Missouri, I would be a wanted man:

Chesterfield residents caught feeding animals will serve up to three months in jail, according to an amended city ordinance passed at a city council meeting earlier this month.

It’s true: I am a notorious deer-feeder. I have planted delicious young fruit trees around Nogglestead for their dining pleasure. Or so they think.

And in today’s science lesson:

Under the amended ordinance, it is now illegal to feed all wild mammals, including pigeons and Canada Geese.

Does the writer need remedial science courses or simply remedial writing courses? In the modern era, I fear the worst.

  1. Definitely remedial writing. Also, the science course, but anyway.

    Anyone who violates the ordinance, which is now in effect, are subject to a $500 fine and/or up to 90 days in jail.

    Anyone is singular. Are is plural. *SMH*
