Wildlife Feeding Policies

Please DO NOT feed the animals

Feeding the wild animals in the parks is very dangerous for both the animal and for the people visiting the parks. Animals that are fed by humans lose their fear of humans, making them more prone to approach people, including hunters.  A person in the parks may see an approaching animal and overreact, causing harm to both the animal and themselves.

Wild animals are very capable of taking care of themselves. So just sit back, relax, enjoy nature, and leave the animals to themselves.
