Love Me Don't Feed Me
Feeding Wildlife Hurts the Animals You Love!
Intentional and unintentional wildlife feeding harms animals in ways you may not perceive. Food does not equal love for a wild animal! Feeding wildlife can degrade habitat, water quality and quality of life for not only the animals being fed but also for citizens negatively affected by nuisance behavior caused by fed wildlife. Do your part to end the problem!
We know you love wildlife, but feeding wildlife only hurts the animals you love.
