Flagstaff to consider ban on feeding wild animals

Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The Flagstaff City Council will consider whether to impose a ban on feeding deer and other animals.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that the council will take up the topic because of a request from a homeowners association.

Mayor Jerry Nabours says the Continental Country Club homeowner's association told him that one resident leaves out food for elk and deer on his property over the objections of neighbors.

According to Nabours, that's resulted in some residents complaining that wild animals are tearing up lawns and leaving behind droppings.

Nabours says he would only support a new law that doesn't prohibit feeding of birds and squirrels.
