Don’t feed wildlife, that is a statement we preach 365 days a year. We want our wildlife to be wild, these animals are not pets. We are all for people caring for wildlife and wanting to do something to help, but what people may not know is when they put food out for wildlife that is harmful to them in many ways. It is also illegal to feed big game in Colorado and there are human safety risks that come when people feed wildlife. In this episode of the Colorado Outdoors Podcast, we discuss the topic with our wildlife pathologist and a wildlife officer from the Castle Rock region.
