The Wheaton city council's recent ban on feeding almost all wildlife within it's city limits has been making the local news lately.


Feral Fixers president Tammy McAuley recently spoke out against the ban at the Wheaton council's meeting, as did several others. Ultimately it did no good as the ban was passed anyway.


This made the news in last Tuesday's Daily Herald newspaper (front section, page 3). There is a link to the online edition article here. The story seems to be balanced and well written. The reader comments are especially interesting and are well worth a look.


This story is a follow-up to a previous story on the issue that you can find here.


WDCB radio, the radio station hosted by the College of DuPage, took note of this issue and interviewed Tammy a few days later. This interview is set to air (90.9 FM) on Monday, May 24th. It is supposed to be on the morning news (from 5:00am to 6:00 am) and also on the evening news (from 6:00pm to 6:30pm). Tammy was told that snippets of the interview are also supposed to be played throughout the day on Monday.


You can listen to the interview on your FM radio, of course, or, if you are at least a little bit 'internet savvy', you can listen to the 'livestream' broadcast of the interviews via your Internet connection - click here for a direct link to the broadcast.


After the interviews are aired, they are also supposed to be available via podcast. When that information becomes available, I'll post it here on this blog.
