Crop damage and diseases in humans and livestock Feeding Wildlife A Wrong Choice Whatever the intentions may be, whether it is to have a closer encounter with wildlife, to help animals in the winter or to increase the number of available game animals, numerous Wildlife Damage Management Techniques problems arise when we feed wildlife. Feeding wildlife interferes with a natural healthy balance between wildlife populations and their habitat. 

For this reason, and for many others Wildlife Damage Management Techniques identified on this page, wildlife biologists suggest to "just say no" to feeding wildlife. Why Feeding Wildlife Does More Harm than Good Wildlife feeding threatens human and animal safety As wild animals are fed they become used to the presence of people. Animals like coyotes and black bears can become a potential threat and can harm both humans and pets. 

Animals may behave abnormally and have to be lethally removed if they are posing a threat. Additionally, more vehicle collisions may occur as deer are drawn closer to roads nearby homes. Wildlife feeding leads to wildlife overabundance An overabundance of wildlife damages natural habitat and creates nuisance issues with humans. For example, overabundant deer populations can result in increased damage to natural forest habitat from over Wildlife Damage Management Techniques browsing, agricultural crop loss, and automobile collisions. 

Additionally, as wildlife approach and stay around homes, deer cause damage to gardens and landscape plants; bears and raccoons raid garbage and pet food; and an abundance of geese and other waterfowl lead to increased droppings. Wildlife feeding can promote the spread of diseases. In the wild, animals naturally disperse across the landscape. However, food promotes the concentration of animals into a small area, which increases the Wildlife Damage Management Techniques potential for diseases to spread. 

Food gets contaminated with feces, saliva, and urine, which easily harbor infectious disease-causing micro-organisms like bacteria, viruses, prions, or fungi. Once Wildlife Damage Management Techniques introduced, these diseases are difficult to eliminate and some can be transmitted to humans (zoonosis). Examples of animal diseases that can easily spread due to feeding includes, Chronic Wasting Disease in deer, House Finch Conjunctivitis, 

Aspergillosis in waterfowl, and Salmonellosis in songbirds. Wildlife feeding may cause malnutrition in wildlife Human foods do not offer a healthy diet for animals. Animals may readily consume foods like corn and bread, but these foods provide an animal with little nutrition and may disrupt the digestive system. When wildlife become reliant on the food source at hand, they stop feeding on the variety of natural foods they need in their diet for proper Wildlife Damage Management Techniques nutrients. 

Feeding the wrong diet to a newborn animal can cause permanent damage to developing muscles, bones and tissues; and young wildlife may not learn to feed normally, which decreases its chance of Wildlife Damage Management Techniques survival. Plastics and other waste from raided garbage bags are also harmful to animals. Wildlife feeding leads to the unnatural behavior of wildlife. 

Animals that become reliable on an abundant year-round food source may not migrate during the normal time of year. Fed animals also become more aggressive towards each other and towards humans as they lose wariness. This results in animals becoming devalued, losing the quality that most people like about wildlife -- their "wildness." Wildlife feeding is illegal for deer, bear and moose in New York State Wildlife Damage Management Techniques. 

To take action against many of these Wildlife Damage Management Techniques issues, DEC has implemented rules and regulations that prohibit the intentional and unintentional feeding for several species of wildlife, including: deer and moose feeding regulations, and bear feeding regulations.
