Cheryl Dann replenishes the feed tray behind her residence for birds and animals.

A Moose Javian is complaining her animal feed was confiscated from her and she’s already contacted a city council member on the subject.

Cheryl Dann, who lives in one of the residences operated by Thunder Creek Association, located off of Iroquois Street East claims feed she put out for birds and animals was confiscated by property management.

“They took the feed I put out and the bag of feed I had,” Dann told the Times-Herald. “I’ve been told they have no right to do that, I bought it with my own money, it’s my property.”

Dann was so upset, she has already been in contact with city councillor Brian Swanson, who Dann claims advised her she is doing nothing wrong. she has since gone out and purchased two new bags of feed.

"We had that really bad cold snap for a few days, so I put some extra out, but I always bring in the tray I use for the feed at night,” Dann said.

Director of adult community services at Five Hills Health Region Anne-Marie Ursan was able to gather some information towards the accusations. Ursan also reports to the board of directors for the Thunder Creek Association.

“feeding wildlife is a practice that is discouraged and Wakamow Valley would also discourage it,” Ursan said. “

    Well this story really takes the cake! What on earth is wrong with feeding the birds and small wildlife that come around, I'm assuming it would be bunnies. Not cougars and bears. Only in Moose Jaw eh?
