Deer Feeding Prohibition Bylaw Remains In Effect, City Reminds
Cranbrook, BC (May 14, 2013) – Residents of and visitors to the City of Cranbrook are reminded that intentional feeding of deer, contravenes the City’s Deer Feeding Prohibition Bylaw, which came into effect in October 2010.
The bylaw clearly states no one is to provide deer with food by intentionally leaving food, food waste or other attractive edible material for the sole purpose of feeding deer. For example, leaving out a bale of hay, a bag of apples or other compostable food scraps on a residential lot or property where these items are not consistently being grown or produced for human consumption would be seen as an infraction to the bylaw.
Home fruit and vegetable gardens intended for human consumption or ornamental plants and flowers will not be included as material intended for the sole purpose of feeding deer under the deer feeding bylaw.
