Animals & University Apartments: So Not Feed the Turkeys

With our community so close to the Lake Shore Nature Preserve, we have our fair share of animals that live in the wooded areas. We have squirrels, raccoons, ducks, geese and of course our infamous turkeys. As residents of University Apartments we need to respect the natural preserve areas and the animals that live within them. Please DO NOT feed the wildlife. Once you feed the animals they become dependent on us to feed them rather than feeding themselves and some animals, like the turkeys, become more aggressive chasing people looking for food. Remember to look at the animals, and not to feed them.
