Dalton Gardens Targets Deer Feeders

Item: Draft ordinance: Don't feed the deer: Dalton Gardens City Council considers ban with possible $100 fine for violations/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The Dalton Gardens City Council tonight is scheduled to discuss a draft ordinance that if passed would ban deer feeding in the city. The purpose, according to a draft posted on the city's website, is to halt an increase in the population of the animal by eliminating feed and attractants. The draft ordinance said deer pose a public safety threat because of vehicle-deer collisions. It also cites spread of disease and damage to landscaping and gardens.

Question: Do you support/oppose this ordinance?
