A retired Texas couple plan to sell their home after being sued for feeding ducks in their neighborhood. George and Kathleen Rowe, who live in Cypress, just northwest of Houston, were named as defendants in a lawsuit filed by the Lakeland Community Homeowners Association after neighbors complained ducks have been damaging their property. The suit seeks “monetary relief of $250,000 or less and non-monetary relief in the form of injunctive relief.”
… According to the suit, the association is asking the court to order the couple to stop feeding any wildlife in the community and seeks a lien against their property for the costs incurred in bringing their unit into compliance with the subdivision’s charter. An attorney for the couple said Kathleen Rowe, who is 65, found feeding the ducks therapeutic in the wake of her child’s death.
… The couple put their house up for sale after their homeowners’ association sued and threatened to foreclose on their home.
