FEEDING the wild Red Foxes is leaving the vulnerable to being killed.
The Dilemma is at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware,
where there are no signs posted to give penalties by Wildlife Law
"Feeding an old coon in your yard, throwing your garbage out and a bear gets it in your yard, feeding your deer in the yard in the winter some corn, feeding your birds some bird seed in your yard, feeding a stray cat because it is hungry and crying in your yard, feeding a chipmunk some peanuts in your yard, even feeding your hawk raw meat in your yard.
I wonder if anyone has yet heard the key word?
it is " YOUR YARD"
THE MAJOR DIFFERENCE IN FEEDING THESE WILD ANIMALS IN YOUR YARD...
Is that it is YOUR YARD! you take on the responsibility and consequences for your actions...
(less importantly is that these animals are usually and hopefully adults that have grown and know how to hunt for what they eat and are not usually unless made to be an interactive type of species.)
If they are it is because you worked hard to make them that way... again your responsibility. your problem!
Here at the wildlife refuge, man gave this land to be dominated by the animals to be owned by them and to be a safe refuge for them to remain WILD. We are visitors, in our yard the land YOU own they are visitors you can either respect that or harm them whatever be your choice. (I have seen and heard both!)
But here in this wildlife refuge the land was given to the wild animal... If you make it a petting zoo instead of a refuge then it is no longer their property... we again own them and they have nothing."
