SEBRING, Fla., March 5 (UPI) -- This is for the birds…

An 81-year-old Florida woman who was arrested last month for violating her probation by feeding bears in her backyard will stay behind bars after being arrested again for feeding crows.

Sebring woman Mary Musselman was warned not to feed bears in November after wildlife officers had to euthanize an animal she had been supplying, but the elderly woman continued to hand out food and was arrested in January.

After being placed on probation again, Musselman was arrested on Monday for leaving bread out for crows. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials also found three feeding stations with corn in her backyard, according to the Tampa Tribune.

"I understand the court orders need to be obeyed. But this woman, she's mentally ill, judge," said her attorney, William Fletcher. Musselman reportedly suffers from Alzheimer's and dementia.

The judge ordered that Musselman will remain in custody until a complete mental evaluation can be arranged.
