Toby Jackson won't be fined for feeding Kamloops crows

The City of Kamloops has agreed to drop $300 in fines for "creating a nuisance" by feeding the crows, according to the man who received the fines, Toby Jackson.

"We came to a compromise," Jackson told Daybreak Kamloops' Shelley Joyce.

"The compromise was basically not feeding them near the house where there is a problem."

Jackson started feeding crows peanuts in hopes of learning more about the animals, but a neighbour complained to the city. He said he hasn't been feeding crows near that neighbour's house since the complaint.

"I feed them further up the road, just not near the complainants house."

Jackson was scheduled to dispute his fines in court on Thursday, and said he's relieved that's no longer necessary.
