To: Osbirds <osbirds@...>
The NYS Dep't. of Environmental Conservation has
announced new regulations on feeding deer that could impact
backyard bird feeders. The regs prohibit feeding deer--expanding
and clarifying an earlier prohibition. The main purpose is to
reduce the likelihood of transmission of Chronic Wasting Disease,
which could have a major impact on the state's deer herd and can
be transmitted when multiple deer are in close proximity. Other
reasons include protecting wildlife habitat, reducing human-deer
interaction, and not artificially raising deer populations.
