[Adopted 12-20-2005 by Ord. No. 2005:32]
Editor's Note: This ordinance also repealed former Art. III, Feeding of Waterfowl, adopted 10-12-2004 by Ord. No. 2004:31.
It has been determined that the presence of large numbers of wild waterfowl as well as large numbers of deer and the occasional presence of bears, coyotes and other wild animals causes a public health nuisance which is inimical to the health and general welfare of the public.
As used in this article, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- To give, place, expose, deposit, distribute or scatter any edible material with the intention of feeding, attracting or enticing wildlife. Feeding does not include baiting in the legal taking of fish and/or game.
- All animals that are neither human nor domesticated.
No person shall feed, cause to be fed or provide food for wild waterfowl, deer, bears, coyotes and other wildlife anywhere in the Township, either on public or private property.
This article shall not be construed to prohibit the feeding of birds with traditional bird feeders, providing the bird feeders are at least five feet above the ground.
This article may be enforced by the Animal Control Officer, Health Officer or the Police Department.
