How to Prevent Conflict from WA Dept of Fish & Wildlife
*Don’t feed wildlife. This includes deer, raccoons, and other small mammals. Remember predators follow prey.
*Feed dogs and cats indoors. Keep dogs and cats indoors, especially from dusk to dawn.
*Light all walkways after dark and avoid landscaping with plants that deer prefer to eat. Where a deer goes, a cougar may follow.
