KETTERING, Ohio – An Ohio woman could serve jail time for feeding squirrels on her neighbors' property.
WDTN-TV reported Annick Richardson of Kettering, Ohio, will appear in court in December for a pretrial hearing on two counts of criminal trespassing. If convicted, she could serve up to 60 days in jail and pay a fine. She was appointed a public defender Friday.
Neighbors said Richardson went onto their property to leave peanuts for local squirrels. The animals, drawn to the nuts, then ruined gardens, chewed through car wires and clogged air conditioners with peanuts, the report said.
