Does it bother you when people ignore animal feeding prohibition signs?

I have often seen people blatantly ignoring visibly placed signposts in public places, parks, etc. which explicitly state not to feed certain animals.

Have you ever witnessed people doing this and does it bother you?

I get most upset,when I see people doing it.
I just tell them, there are reasons 'why' we should not feed them.
Good old common sense.
Unfortunately sense is not all that common these days!
Yes, it really annoys me!
Yeah, I get cranky about stuff like that (also people littering). The signs are there for a reason, for the good of the animals.
Sure does - I have seen people hand feeding the Ibis birds around South Bank (Brisbane). They are teaching kids to ignore important signage and they are thinking only of themselves.

It bothers the heck out of me. If you don't understand why rules such as these are established then find out more before choosing to make trouble. I find that people who do this either genuinely don't understand or think that those who enforce the rules are overreacting.

It bothers me a lot too but I never have the guts to go up to them and let them know that what they are doing is "wrong".
Yes, it bothers me too. People are so arrogant that they think these rules don't apply to them.
Yes, this sure does bother me as it was once explained to me by a wild life officer that ducks etc can get very sick from bread, and things that humans feed them.

I do not know why people cannot read signs and it upsets me to see this happen -I have sometimes gone up to the person (when I lived opposite a huge lake and walked every morning) and pointed out the sign to them.
They do not like this generally!

Yes, It does annoy me! The signs are there for a reason. Last time my husband & I were sitting on a bench at Circle Quay, a man in front of us on another bench was feeding crumbs to seagulls. (A lot of (bread) crumbs!)
