SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Feeding deer within the city limits of Sioux Falls will soon be illegal.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1okq5ch ) that the City Council voted 6-1 on Tuesday to approve an ordinance prohibiting deer feeding in backyards, beginning Nov. 28.

Police Chief Doug Barthel says it’s a “critical piece” of an urban deer management plan that also includes the killing of deer by trained officers.

Deer in city limits can cause property damage and vehicle collisions.
