For instance, in Braintree, you cannot feed wild animals, but this also includes homeless dogs and cats. You can, however, apply for a permit to set up a feeding station to feed feral cat colonies. As with most towns, dog licenses are required, and owners must pick up said dog's poop on any public property.
Animal advocates will be pleased to know that Braintree does not allow exotic animals used for entertainment on any property in town. This includes circuses and carnivals.
You cannot shuck corn and leave the remnants out, as it might be a lure for birds.
