CAPE CORAL, Florida – “Shout, don’t throw away your prey” – This is the message Cape Coral wants to send to people who throw garbage near burrowing owls.
Gene St. Louis was fed up with finding empty beer cans in vacant lots near his home. He said it has been happening for months and is endangering the endangered owls.
“It’s just unacceptable. It is devastating our neighborhood first and the owls are in danger, ”he said. “I’m just begging the church. You have to stop this guy. Anyone who does that just has to be stopped. “
After collecting cans for more than five months, he finally put up a sign that read, “Stop throwing your beer cans in our neighborhood.”
St. Louis said he has never seen anyone throw the cans away, but he hopes that news will reach them.
“You’re only endangering these owls. I mean, they don’t deserve it. “
