Feeding deer increases their population artificially, attracting predators and acclimating them to living within the community.  That poses a danger to pets, children and adults who live in the village.

It is illegal to feed deer in California. Penalties may include a fine and/or jail time, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
