Is your homeowners association located in an area that wildlife frequent? More specifically, is your Association located in such a location that deer regularly visit your community? While deer are beautiful creatures to admire, the HOA board may want to caution owners from interacting too closely with these animals.
Many owners often have a soft place in their heart for animals and wildlife, and have the best of intentions regarding their contact with them. However, feeding deer is not in their best interests, or the interests of the Association.
Deer browsing in the backyard may be a charming site – but Lyme disease and road kill are not. To protect the community members and your Association a simple message from the HOA board may be necessary: "Please refrain from feeding the deer…let nature do its job!"
