Wild animals often become a nuisance when fed. They may lose their fear of humans and increase the risk of exposure to disease through animal bites and droppings left by the animal. You may believe that feeding them is helping them in some way, but in fact the opposite is true. We would like to remind all residents that it is prohibited by township ordinance to feed wildlife, including but not limited to deer, waterfowl and feral cats.
