Residents reminded Deer Feeding Prohibition Bylaw in effectPosted: May 28, 2012

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.

To be clear, farm operations, 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. Anyone found violating the Deer Feeding Prohibition Bylaw will be committing an offense and can be fined on an escalating fine schedule; $100 for the first offense, $200 for the second, $500 for the third.

Each day a violation occurs constitutes a new and separate offense. To view a copy of the Deer Feeding Prohibition Bylaw 3709, 2010, please visit the City of Cranbrook website at www.cranbrook.ca and click on ‘Bylaws’, under the Quick Links list on the homepage.
