RAMSEY, N.J. (AP) - A judge has dismissed a ticket issued to a New Jersey couple for feeding wildlife in their backyard.

Neighbors had complained that Annette and Alfred Rockefeller were attracting too many animals to their home in Ramsey.

The town's environmental health officer testified Tuesday that he advised Annette it was illegal to place feed on the ground and a wire wreath-style feeder near their deck was not appropriate for birds.

The couple had faced a fine of $250 to $500.

Annette Rockefeller tells The Record the case should have been dropped months ago and she's happy "they finally came to their senses."

The couple can keep the bird feeder.
