Taylor Swift's tweet last night landed her some words of gentle criticism from Australian wildlife authorities. She's currently on tour and visited a Melbourne park after her show last night.
She shared on Twitter:
Tonight the band and I played a show, then hopped in the van and headed to the park for some midnight wild possum feeding.
A spokesperson for Australia’s Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) told Radar Online:
"We know people who feed wild animals often have the best intentions and that it is attractive to tourists who want to interact with Australian wildlife.
"However, DSE advises people not to feed wild animals... it can disrupt their natural behaviour and it can cause some animals to lose their natural fear of people, making them vulnerable to attack."
I'm sure Taylor didn't mean any harm. Who knows, she might have just been joking about the feeding completely, right?
