Do you know now why there are always signs telling you not to feed wildlife? Making wild animals feel comfortable around humans is bad for both sides. If you feed a predator you, as a human, are associated with food to it, an alligator for example who is naturally afraid of humans would start to attack humans after this association. It might also be encouraged to move into more residential areas, and eventually posing a danger. If you feed a deer it will become less afraid of humans, what may get the animal killed. Also changing an animal’s food habits may endanger the animal by causing it not to migrate when it should and starve. We are responsible for the safety of our environment!
