guard at the main gate at Folsom State Prison feeding deer

Like we said in the headline, it’s a happy moment from a very depressing place.

Feeding WILD animals should not be considered a "happy" moment.  Absolute worst thing one can be doing for a wild animal.  The guard should be educated on the matter...

When Bambi no longer has a fear of humans, and decides to walk up to a hunter and takes one in the head how is that good for the animal?  People don't realize they are doing more harm than good.

The hunter is gonna get his prize no matter if the deer is tame or not. That's not really a valid argument.

Maybe, but correct nevertheless. The problem is not that Bambi will more easily get shot, it's that Bambi's kids won't know how to find their own food after Bambi gets shot. Same goes for ducks, chipmunks, squirrels, etc.The other problem, which you see a lot at the popular national parks, is that the critters get so comfortable and bold, that people forget they are wild and end up getting bit by them, risking rabies. Bad for the people, too!

Wow!  You obviously don't hunt and are clueless on the matter.  Seems as though you need as much educating as the guard does.

 

There have been countless articles/news reports/blogs over the years citing all the reasons why feeding wild animal is a bad idea.  I suggest you go read some of them.

Are the animals on the prison property fenced in or free to roam on and off the property? (curious)

That's what the deer are for... the lions, tigers, and bears.

Dave, my guess is there are places they can jump a fence, but I'm not sure. I know they keep the cows in.

The deer are free-roaming, There is a fence, but it is not high enough to keep them in.  However, they have some of the best habitat around on the prison grounds, so I'm not sure why they would want to leave.

Same with the turkeys.  They seem to like the prison property, too.
