Please don’t feed the wildlife!

Some residents have noticed piles of human food waste like bread, English muffins etc. near the Charman property. While you may be thinking it helps the wildlife, the opposite is true. That chipmunk you feed nuts to, or the seagulls you feed with stale bread, or the seeds for the birds, makes them dependant on humans. That is when you get black bears attracted by garbage, chipmunks and squirrels burrowing in your attic or under your steps, foxes and coyotes attracted by the mice that feed on the seeds etc.

Here is a link that describes the problem:
