Speaking with Seattle journalist Katy Sewall for the BBC, Lisa Mann said her daughter started feeding the crows sporadically in 2011.
The family set up a robust feeding operation two years later after she realized her daughter had formed a bond with the birds.
Gabi fed crows and pigeons for years at the family’s Portage Bay neighborhood home. Writing the court, attorney Justo Gonzalez said inspections of the Manns' home by King County health authorities found no evidence the feeding operation had attracted rats or other pests.
