Wildlife Feeding Ban

To address the increasing amount of deer, and wildlife, the 2015 Wildlife Management Ordinance imposes a feeding ban on wild animals typically found in Roseville. The feeding ban includes:


  • Distributing one or more gallons of grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, or hay within a 24-hour period is prohibited
  • Having a salt lick at a location that regularly attracts wild animals is prohibited
  • Note: The ordinance includes an exemption for small backyard bird feeders

Feeding Ban Penalties

Penalties for violating the feeding ban are a series of administrative fines, including $100 for the first violation, $200 for a second and $300 for subsequent violations within a two-year period.

Call 651-792-7080 if you believe someone is violating the feeding ban.
