Unfortunately the business appears to be a protected species. Despite their leaving the bin open being an offence under NSW Food Safety Regulations and several complaints to the local council, nothing has been done. Perhaps it is only a coincidence that the Council Rangers, whose office is just up the road, use the bakery as their favourite spot for lunch and coffee. Heaven forbid the thought that upstanding public officers would derelict their duty by turning a blind eye to a blatant offence.

As for Rattus rattus, they are doing just fine thank you on their new diet.

(refuses?) to close their waste skip since new owners took over some 2
years ago. Consequently the local population of CMs has blown out.


That's revolting Carl. The health department or the local council might be interested as not only will the mynahs be eating but also the local rattus
