WISCONSIN NEWS: City Bans Deer Feeding

OSHKOSH, Wis. - Oshkosh residents can no longer feed deer in the city.

The Oshkosh Common Council approved a ban on deer feeding Tuesday in an effort to discourage deer from entering urban areas.

People caught feeding deer can be fined nearly $220, when court costs are added to a base fine of $75.

Council members agreed to seek other suggestions for detering deer from the residents and the Humane Society of the United States. They also are looking at killing some deer in the fall or early winter.
