Supes OK zoo behavior and duck feeding legislation 

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday in a second and final vote to approve legislation that amends the park code to tighten up rules of conduct at the San Francisco Zoo.

The legislation, introduced by Supervisor Sean Elsbernd, increases the maximum fines for violations from $500 to $1,000 and adds language to the park code that prohibits entrance into animal enclosures or habitats at San Francisco Zoo and at the bison paddock in Golden Gate Park, among other things.

The legislation also cracks down on the feeding of animals in city parks, but was amended to lighten that restriction by allowing the Recreation and Park Commission to “authorize the feeding of certain animals and birds in specified areas.”
