Jim and-Mary Gibson cel- ebrated their 50th Wedding Don't feed wildlife Amen to the fine article by Alexa Johnson in the October 26th Islander, concerning our deer problem. I don't know why it's taken so long to educate the public about tl~ harm caused to wildlife by feeding inappropriate food. Unfortunately, the local deer population is now domesticated, and may be unable to return to foraging on the abun- dant food supply in the interior of the island. should A copy of Alexa's artic[ be included in each rental(ageney packet that is given to renters to each golf cart renter. As little as we need more signs, it is nec- essary for Fish and Game or the city to post signs where feeding is prevalent, advising the public of the law and fines for feeding the wildlife.
