HAMPTON – The town is looking to follow the lead of neighbouring municipalities that have banned the feeding of deer.

Councillor Robert Doucet motioned to have town staff investigate the possibility of creating a bylaw much like the communities in the Kennebecasis Valley. Both Quispamsis and Rothesay have enacted ones that would see residents fined for feeding deer.

“I think we need to come up to speed with Quispamsis and Rothesay,” Doucet said. “I recommend staff do some research on other municipalities and come up with a recommendation.”

It’s not the first time the town has talked about dealing with its deer problem.
