FRIENDLY REMINDER FROM CHIEF RUSS HUNLOCK, WAPAKONETA POLICE DEPARTMENT
With the fall season here, certain areas of the city have an abundance of birds that are migrating and landing on citizen’s property.
Although we understand this can be quite a nuisance, we are reminding residents that it is illegal to set off fireworks and/or discharge firearms in an attempt to scare the birds away.
We have fielded a couple of concerns of this type of behavior occurring and we do not want to see anyone getting hurt. Please, do not set off fireworks or discharge firearms. As we receive complaints of this happening, we will look into them and handle them accordingly.
Chief of Police
