DOW says don't feed the deer

The Colorado Division of Wildlife urges state residents and visitors not to feed deer that are hanging around their yards or property.
Deer digest very slowly and if they eat the wrong types of food and too much food they will not be able to digest or pass the material and they will die. So, deer should not be fed hay, pet food, fruits, vegetables or any type of table scraps.
If you have sage brush or other shrubs on your property, knock the snow off of those to expose some natural food for the animals.
