FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) _ The Flagstaff City Council will consider whether to
impose a ban on feeding deer and other animals.
The Arizona Daily Sun reported that the council will
take up the topic because of a request from a homeowners association.
Mayor Jerry Nabours said 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.
